Kerning offset overflow
Hi there. I was wondering if someone might know how to address this error (aside from having less kerning):
makeotfexe [FATAL] <Font> In feature 'kern' positioning rules cause an offset overflow (0x1256a) to a lookup subtable
In my initial investigation it seems like the useExtension tag can be added to force the AFDKO to use offsets bigger than 64K. I’m not sure where this might be inserted though. I recall reading somewhere that there is a temporary file that Robofont passes to the AFDKO that can be modified?
Any pointers are greatly appreciated!

I vaguely remember this during Blanco. I assume you're just using MM and saving using the auto generated kerning feature.
Have you tried exporting the kerning from metrics machine as a separate kerning file and including that in the features?
@connor Cheers Connor. I’ll check it out!
@FosterType Hey Dave. I haven’t tried that. Nice tip, I’ll give it a go. Cheers.
