  • 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.

      Looks nice, but as Kayekaye said, the shadows need some work. Shadows are never an even gray. In the real world, the shadows very close to where the balls meet the surface would be nearly black and fade...

      I'll suggest soaking up everything you're told -- even when it's with a grain of salt. At this point your professors know more than you, and there'll be plenty of time a ways down the road (when you've...

      I don't think today's typesetting is comparable to Gutenberg's work. It's a bit like comparing the Wright brothers to contemporary aviation engineers. Both Gutenberg and the Wright brothers made huge,...

      If this is for you as a designer its is way too busy. Do some research and design a much more streamlined layout based on a grid.
