I’m in the process of converting an old font with kerning pairs to class-based kerning. I’m running into something odd, and I’m not sure what it means.
Say I have ÄV kerned with a kerning pair (kerning exception, like it’s called in glyphs). I assign Ä a class so it kerns like AV and delete the exception. So now I click on Ä and on the right side it shows the kerning number and a lock. So far so good. But if I move the cursor to the V next to it, it shows on the left the same number but with an open lock. I don’t get it, shouldn’t it also be closed if it’s the same pair? or is it a bug?
While I’m at it, I have a suggestion. If a letter has both pair and class kerning, I’d like to see the value of the class kerning too, even if it’s grayed out, for reference.
