Finding Kerning Pairs that are Zero

Post by Jonne Haven » Sat Jul 15, 2017 3:53 am

I'd like to automatically find pairs in the opentype designer that have a zero value. Is there a way to find this quickly? Not counting trim.

Thanks,

Jonne

Validating the code in the Code Editor will show zero kern values as warnings. Zero kern values are also displayed in red. in the Pair Adjustment lookup.

Double-clicking each warning will locate it in the script, where you can delete it or change the zero to a positive or negative value. Make sure that you edit the XAdvance (the First value) and not the YAdvance.
