  • Fontlab kerning issues

    Can anyone help me with an issue I'm having in Fontlab? I am creating my own font and have pasted all the characters into their metric windows, etc. I've also adjusted the metrics and kerning. The main issue is this: my font is somewhat script-like so the capital "T" and the lowercase "h" appear to be fitted correctly when I type up the word "The" in the metrics window, but when I generate the font, it is not showing up the way that it does in the fontlab program. Basically, the are not fitting together correctly. This is my first time using fontlab and I'm pretty much self taught. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm using this on a PC.

    Most Likely its the program your using. Make sure your "preferences" are set right.

      Of course, that only works if you are turning 17 next year. Everyone else carries on as before...

      ^ Ditto ALL of this.
      Do your clients pay you for billable work completed, or not?
      If the work is done, any work, it is billable work.
