    -Introduction-

    In this academy course we will look at letter spacing—the adjustments of the space between letterform for entire passages (“tracking”) and individual letter pairs (“kerning”).

    Fixing kerning

    My company uses their own typeface for a UI, and it's... not great. The most obvious issue is the kerning. I've never edited a typeface in my life; is it worth trying, or is this best left to the experts? Is kerning-only a reasonable newbie project?

    Optical vs. Metric kerning in InDesign

    I am currently preparing a YouTube video on this issue and would love to hear some more opinions about it. Right on time, a discussion just appeared on Twitter about it, but I won’t bother trying to squeeze simplified answers in 140 characters. I prefer to elaborate, which isn’t possible on Twitter. While I get the general point and agree to it, I don’t like how this is phrased. It’s too dogmatic in its meaning, even though it says »please«. Good kerning is about a certain result. It’s irrelevant and actually invisible how you got there. But the above statement makes a generalized recommendation about a certain way to apply kerning as if that would guarantee the best results, which is of course not true. It’s easy to find a font with bad kerning which could proofs Nick’s recommendation wrong. Again, I agree and made the point myself in a humorous way, but in many if not most situations when a designer sets text, he/she isn’t even in the position to pick another font. So a generalized recommendation about using either metric kerning or picking another font wont help in this case. So why NOT use optical kerning (even if only as a start) in such a case? That is the interesting question, someone objecting to using optical kerning would need to answer. Now the premises are changed ex post. The original tweet didn’t say anything about the recommendation being only valid for “good fonts” and again: having the choice to only use good fonts isn’t realistic. So what is your opinion? How do you use the kerning choices in InDesign and how would you phrase your recommendations about using them?

    Help with kerning

    Hello There is something wrong with the kerning of this word, Curartor (not a typo). But I can't seem to put my finger on it. Is there anyone who can give me some hints or help with this? It looks like Replica, but with a modified 'C'. It just doesn't look right. Thanks

    Seeking Advice from Type Professionals

    Hi forum, I'm new here. Sign Installer by day, typographer by night. lol My name is Andy. I believe I may have come upon a comprehensive theory of kerning, or the mathematical formula and principles governing exceptional typographic space. After years of failures I am finally beginning to see positive results . If this continues to prove elegant, and kerning can be completely explained and performed mathematically, what the hell do I do with it? Seeking advice. Thanks! Is this stupid? has it already been resolved?

    MetricsMachine

    MetricsMachine is a commercial kerning app for Mac OS X developed by Tal Leming (TypeSupply). MetricsMachine is streamlined for a professional workflow: you create groups of similarly shaped glyphs, then you create lists of pairs that you want to proof, then you proof those pairs one at a time until you are finished, then you export your kerning to an OpenType ready feature file.
