Help with variable font, kerning disruption

Post by shuki »

I noticed that when I add a variable axis, the kerning in the project gets messed up or resets
And also the location of anchored punctuation marks.

I will mention that the axis is intended for a specific number of glyphs, and even when I remove the instances of the axis from all the characters it is not intended to affect - it still changes the kerning.
What are the solutions to prevent the disruption of kerning and scoring?
Is there a way to make it lock according to the master settings?

I have no idea what is going on.

A sample project with a couple of characters that illustrates the problem would help.

Didn't solve the problem completely only partially,
There are conjugations that change

It works just fine here, so if you see issues, please provide more information so we can understand the problem you still face.

To understand what I did, I removed the 3 _rochab masters, and added a new Black one based on the original Black one. This seems to be an identical copy now.

You removed all the rochab weights and you can still see a problem with the spacing
