Best way to not kern swashes

Post by JamieClarke »

Hi There,
I've create a set swashed capitals using the .swsh suffix.
The swash shapes only affect the LSB of the .swsh characters, The right side should follow the usual capitals.
What the best way to handle this with Kern-on?

You can set the left to "No Kerning" and leave the right side at "Standard Kerning". Is that what you are looking for?

Thanks Sebastian, I think so. Simply go through each manually and set it?

Yes, “No kerning” is probably the solution in this case. Note that you can simply select several glyphs and set it for all of them.
