I am using the main Glyphs program (rather than mini) and am having issues with kerning when I export my font. In the app I have set all my kerning perfectly, but when I come to export the font the kerning is totally different. I have tried emptying my font cache, and saving the font in both OTF and TTF, and testing in a range of programs but all with the same result.
Originally I installed via Font Book, but I renamed the font and tried your method of the direct install via the Adobe Fonts library but that didn’t work either. I have already cleared the cache and it didn’t help sadly.
Thank you but I don’t believe that to necessarily be the issue. When I upload my font to the various marketplaces, they all showcase the font in preview mode the same as my Adobe products do. If it were just a kerning issue in Photoshop, the file should be correct.
Are you able to reply to my email and send me back the OTF/TTF file?
I have the same problem. I set the kerning between brackets () and the zero to -45, but the right bracket sticks to -75. I use FontExplorer and do testing in InDesign (with metric kerning). I have already tried multiple exports as OTF and TTF, updating the metrics of every glyph, renaming the font file, emptying my cache (including restarting my computer) and using the Adobe Fonts folder, in between which I have always quit and restarted all the software used.
Please help me!
Update 1: After updating Glyphs to the latest version (2.5 1131) at least both the brackets stick to the same value: -75. But still: it’s the wrong value. Is there something I’m missing here?
Update 2: It seems as if the values were getting calculated against the values of the capital O, which are set to -30. I am using a kerning group based on the O, which I also applied to the zero. But in this case (with the brackets) I had unlocked the zero from the O’s values, and thus Glyphs let me apply individual values to the zero, which were working fine. Only after exporting they were messed up. I have now worked around the problem by removing the zero from the O-kerning-group, but this does not quite feel like an actual solution to the problem. Do you get any thoughts on this?
Because it let‘s me easily manage the thousands of font files I have in my library. But, as I mentioned: I already tried the font folder method as well. (Of course only after completely deleting the font from FontExplorer and quitting the application.) Also, my font is normalized to 1000 UPM too. The problem still ocurred.
I have the same problem here. Kerning in Glyphs works fine. After exporting and testing in InDesign and other apps, some pairs are correct, some pairs are not present. I have cleared the font cache, exported the fonts with completely different names, all with the same result.
And yes, i have enabled metric kerning in InDesign.
