Kerning the second glyph in pair

Post by Jonne Haven » Thu Jul 27, 2017 6:27 am

I have two fonts which are very similar but for a change in some of the glyphs.

I want to easily kern both the 1st glyph in the pairs as well as the 2nd glyph in the pairs. The 1st glyph is easy, I just open the code editor and copy and paste from one project to another. However the 2nd glyph is scattered all over the code editor. I can't copy and paste the whole kerning pairs as there are changes in the glyphs between projects. Is there a way to kern just the second glyph in the pair? This would save A LOT of time on my end.

Blessings,

Jonne

Use Find Next (F3) in the Code Editor.

I'm aware of the find next option, unfortunately this doesn't save me much time. Is there no other way to mass select the second in the pair?

Thanks,

Jonne

Just following up,

I've found no easy way to mass kern the second pair in the kerning pair.

Is there any way to do this?

Blessings,

Jonne

I don't think there is an easy way, but if we can come up with a simple and effective solution, I'll be happy to implement it.
