Why the only option for pairs containing Y is independent?

Post by sarll »

I've been trying to define kerning pairs for Y, however Kern On only allows me to set it as independent pair, the auto and model buttons appear disabled. I even deleted all the kerning to start from scratch believing maybe there were any models contradicting this, but the issue persists.

This is strange. The only reason why the model and auto buttons can be disabled is that one of the two glyphs in the pair is set to “No kerning”. As we can see, the o is set to “Standard kerning” so the only possibility is that the Y has “No kerning” set. Can you check? If that’s not the case you could send me the file, then I can investigate.

In fact this was the issue. I guess I managed to set Y to no-kerning when I was tinkering with the program. Thanks for your help!
