Kerning not exporting

Hi all! I’m having a weird issue with a kerning pair not exporting on a variable font I’ve been working on. I’ve tried re-locking pairs and running the “steal metrics” script from a master whose pair works.

“AWA” displaying nicely in Glyphs.

“AW-A” when exported. Strangely the Italic axis still has the proper kerning.

Any ideas?

  1. Which exact app version?
  2. Does the first master have a kern value for that pair?

Version 2.6.5 (1342)

And yes! In every master there are kerning values for those pairs.

Can you please send me the .glyphs file to support (at) (this website without www). I will have a look.

Sent! Thank you for having a look.

In the Light Italic Master, there is a @W to ‘A’ kerning pair. That is distributed to all other masters on export and overwrites the @W @A kerning. So remove that exception manually and it will work.

filter for exceptions in the kerning window and check if you have more cases like this (e.g. W+O).

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it and I’ll have a look at all my kerning pairs more carefully now. :slight_smile:
