Store kern list in-file?

Hi Tim, I've found some usefulness in editing the pair_frequencies.txt file, adding some pairs that are missing, or taking out some pairs we don't want kerned. It's great that the list is accessible to the user! I have a few different pair_frequencies.txt files I've been trying out, and so to swap t...

Re: Special Spacing groups not maintained in UFO

On further testing, it seems like it's a Glyphs bug, so I started a post here https://forum.glyphsapp.com/t/glyph-use ... -bug/19803

Special Spacing groups not maintained in UFO

Hi Tim, This might be a bit of an edge case, but I noticed a bug that I thought I should report. It seems like the special spacing definitions are getting lost when saving a font as a UFO. Steps: 1.

Re: Consider UC and LC separately

I was going to make a new post about this topic but I might just chime in here: I understand fully the goal of Kern On is to make everything consistent. However, I found that I often was receiving errors like "Removing model XH because it is tighter than rt". To me, cases just need to be c...

Ask to confirm model removal

Hi Tim, Thanks so much for making this tool; it took a few days to learn but now that I've gotten used to it, I find it really helpful!
