Hello Frederik. I wonder how I can do group kerning in robofont, as I do not (or not yet) have metrics machine.
is there an easy way with not too much of coding? Or can I use the groups2feature-extension to access groups in the kerning center?
I am not familiar with coding except for really basic stuff, so please excuse if my question seems to be weird.
thank you, Ronnie
first make your groups in the Group editor (http://doc.robofont.com/documentation/workspace/group-editor/)
if your group name starts with a '@' then you can use it in Kern Center (http://doc.robofont.com/documentation/workspace/metrics/kern-center/)
Adding a kerning pair hit the plus button at the bottom and the drop down input box should show you all the existing groups that can be used for kerning.
While generating a binary RoboFont (ufo2fdk) looks if there is already a "kern" feature present in the feature file. If not it will compile the kerning in side the UFO to a "kern" feature. If you have already declared a "kern" feature it will not be overwritten by the UFO kerning.
hope this makes sense.
@! got it! everything super. thank you very much.
