  • 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.

      I think you're forcing that radiator grill idea in a direction it doesn't want to go. Just an idea, but a simple, radiator-like approximation of a P1L can be made using four equally spaced vertical bars...

      Also, don't connect the P to the 1.
