After exporting the file, either otf or ttf, the font seems to work fine in Illustrator or InDesign, though there are updates to the kerning which do not come through in Word or Powerpoint - where the client will be using the font.
I have tried clearing any cache issues as per 2.10.6 of the Glyphs Handbook, and have moved to Suitcase Fusion 5 instead of Font Book.
I am experiencing this issue with Word 2011 and Word 2015.
My font looks unkerned but when I activate kerning from Format > Font > Advanced > Kerning for fonts, it looks fine. Is that how it is supposed to work?
I read these articles:
Since the kerning is off (as it appears) by default, would TimAhrens suggestion to assign PUA’s to unencoded kerned glyphs make any difference? Should I not bother about this or is there a way to make the font have kerning on by default?
This is an image from Word 2011. The text on the top is default and the one below is with the kerning activated.
DTF’s post said it best. MS should make better software – but one has to realize their software is aimed at the business user, not the graphic arts user. The one program they have (Publisher) that is supposed to be for graphic artists and printers is a cheap, low-end piece of trash.
That being said, there is nothing you can do to your font to force Word to work better. It is all up to the app.
Hi! My font has this kerning problem. I already red the other threads regarding this topic and I made sure it is not a cache problem. I thought it might be the unicode value problem (Kerning Issue in Microsoft Office 2011) so I made a test font without the respective glyphs.
I am using Word for Mac 2016. Activating the kerning in the Advanced Font Settings activates the kerning for other fonts, but not for mine.
Now, how do I fix this? I can’t find any source of the problem in the glyphs or font file.
