Kern On v 1.04

Post by Tim Ahrens »

Just published version 1.04. To update, head over to https://kern-on.com/update/

This version does not add any obvious new features but has significantly improved overall behaviour:
  • More consistent, reliable and better autokerning results.
  • Better model sugestions.
  • Additional warnings. As always, do take them seriously but feel free to ignore if you are sure about it.
  • Some small tweaks to the UI.

Note: This update is likely to autokern the font somewhat differently.
I recommend to:
  • Fully kern the font(s) you are working on (using the “Kern On” button)
  • Create a backup copy of that file
  • Install the latest version of Kern On
  • Open the file, start Kern On
  • In case Kern On removes models (this can happen), resolve the problems
  • Open the backup file
  • In Glyphs, activate the new version (which has KO running)
  • Choose “Compare to...” the old version
  • Examine the changes
