I am trying to publish a font and finding much of the work involved in the kerning process is being done in Excel using the OpenType code.
Here are some of the basic processes that I am doing in Excel, which would help in the OpenType Designer Code Editor:
1. Replace / Replace All
I use this for merging PairClasses together. For example:
- replacing all instances of "_A3" with "_A1"
- replacing all instances of " w " with "PairClass_w"
I use this for grouping all letters together, such as "a" with "agrave". This allows me to replace the first instance with the PairClass_a group, and delete the remaining instances.
