I’m doing a script typeface using .isol, .fina, .medi and .init.
First the kerning, as the letter shapes are slightly different and I plan on doing western, central and south eastern glyphs what is the best way to setup kerning groups?
Should I set 4 kerning groups for each letter i.e.
Then create say
aacute.isol / kerning group = a.isol
aacute.fina / kerning group = a.fina
aacute.medi / kerning group = a.medi
aacute.init / kerning group = a.init
Is that the best way to do it, or is there a smarter way. Its a lot of kerning, but would be worth it.
One other question do I even need the .medi glyph? I’m using the script build positional calt feature
can I just use the regular glyph for the .medi? will that work as at the moment my regular glyph is not
used at all?
Any help/advice much appriciated
