Clone kerning classes

mkoning's picture

Hi everybody, I´m building a font in which upper and lower letters are the same. While doing my kerning classes I found that could be cool to copy and paste the classes for, for example f and F. Is there any way to accomplish this task without doing same task twice?

Thanks dudes!

Why don’t you just put f into the F class?

how I can do that? Can I copy classes? how?

You’re missing my point. You don’t need to make a copy of the class if the letters are identical. Just put the second letter into the class you’ve already created for the first letter. This saves you from creating the second batch of classes entirely.

Michael, whole the point of having kerning classes in the first place is to group similar shapes together—that's what kerning classes are. In the classes panel in Fontlab, you'd make a class called '_kernF' or whatever, and you'd add all f-like shapes into that group. Just make sure you remember which glyph is the key glyph, or you'll get messed up kerning in your output file. What exactly are you asking?
