Erwin,

In the meantime, can you make version 2409 available to me. I'd rather not have the Greek working what with the bugs in 2410, in 2409 at least I was able to kern regular latin like "2B". I have installed 2405 to see if it works, and indeed it does. So the problem it seems was introduced during 2410.

Blessings,

Jonne

Erwin,

Nevermind making 2409 available. I've installed 2405 and updated to 2408. Every thing is working except for kerning Greek letters.

Version 2410 seems to work similar to Firefox and Microsoft Word, so even though you don't like it, it is working just fine.

Erwin,

I don't understand why I'm unable to kern "2B" in 2410 and yet I am able to in 2408. Also in 2408 I am able to kern a class which contains Greek letters, though it doesn't kern the Greek it is able to kern the other glyphs in that class. This I am unable to do in 2410. I don't understand.

Thanks,

Jonne

You can kern it in version 2410, but not if it comes right after a non-Latin character!

A shaping engine will break text into smaller trunks, it will split when it detects another script.
