My first typeface, I have done spacing , now kerning - have a few questions


This typeface I am making has only lowercase characters and for the capital letters I plan on doing Add Glyphs > a=A etc. But I have some alternate characters that I will place in the capital letters, so that when someone uses the type and they pressed shift k they would get an alternate k but it still being lowercase.

I have done spacing and its 30 for both right and left for every character. I’m wondering now how to kern the letters so that both a and A are kerned. Instead of having to kern each letter twice…

Thank you very much!
