Copy kern on setup from one master to another

Post by rosaiani »

I have a typeface with masters that are exactly the same metrics/kerning with just minor letter tweaks. Can I set Kern on up in a way that copies the kerning automatically when generated? I know I could just copy paste it afterwards but it's not an optimal workflow.

If your metrics are shared between masters you could use the custom parameter “Link Metrics With Master”. Then Kern On will understand and use identical kerning. See also this post.

Would that work in your case?
