How to reduce the large space between letters in the finished font.?

Post by Magistr01 » Wed Jul 24, 2019 10:27 am

Hi,
I created my own font. But after the letter "Z" there was a big gap. How can this be corrected?
Thanks for the information.

To change the right side-bearing of Z, drag the bearing line to the left, or edit the value in the Glyph Properties dialogue and click on Apply.

The Help File Says:
Left side-bearing, right side-bearing, and advance width

In the Glyph Edit window there are two vertical lines (normally the glyph outline lies in between these lines) that represent the left and right side-bearings. These are shown by default but you can hide them through the Show Metrics button on the Drawing toolbar. The left and right side-bearings can be changed by dragging them to their desired position. You can also adjust the side-bearings through the Glyph Properties tool window. White space should be evenly distributed between the left and right side-bearings of glyphs except when font is specifically designed with ligatures for joining characters in a cursive script font.
I moved your thread to the right forum, as this is a support question.
