Wrong Kerning Group generated

Post by HugoJourdan »

Hi Tim,

I don't why but when I run KernOn, KernOn assign to some glyphs weird Kerning Group.
I attach you some exemple.
Sometime it's note very annoying, but other it's a real problem.

I guess it's because KernOn think the glyphs outline are similar to another glyph and decide to use same Kerning Group.

Did that happen because I didn't set correctly my models ?

Don’t worry about the names of the groups. They can’t be “wrong”. Also, they will not end up in the exported fonts.

I understand, but in some case, KernOn think two glyphs are similar and put the same Kerning Group for both whereas their design are quite different for not share the same Kerning Group.

Here is an example :
KernOn set for right Kerning Group of "sterling" the same as "ampersand", while the outline are completely different and does not share a similarity.
