Kerning multiple masters

Hi all,

I’ve created two masters and think I’m ready to interpolate them, but wanted to check – should I kern them first? I’m not sure if values like kerning interpolate then are ready for a little tweaking, or if all instances should be created then kerned individually.

Likewise, I’m going to create italics – should I kern the current two masters, then duplicate the file or is will I need to kern the italics separately as well?

Thanks for the help all


You set up your master file as described in the manual and the tutorials. Then you can export, kern, export, edit outline in any order and as often as you like.

Hey Stew - Spacing and kerning, as well as some other numeric variables will interpolate. It would make life easiest to do this on your masters.
