We approach spacing and kerning very carefully. In the case of modifying existing typefaces, we first analyse existing spacing and kerning pairs, and only then do we proceed to solve the problems found.
In addition to tuning the spacing, we can convert individual kerning pairs into class kerning, add missing pairs, and even remove erroneous pairs.
The kerning of accented characters (including a wide variety of exceptions) is a matter of course, as are numerals, punctuation and basic symbols, ligatures, small capitals and alternative forms of characters.
When modifying and creating fonts, we take special care to correctly set the vertical metrics and UPM values so that fonts correctly display in a variety of applications on various platforms, and so that, for example, MS Word doesn’t cut part of the character, or that individual weights in the family would “jump” on the screen.
By default, we prepare spacing and kerning for Latin character sets (including Vietnamese, phonetic characters, pan-African character sets, etc.), Cyrillic and Greek.
