Auto menu + class kerning don't work

DotlessHyphen's picture

In Metrics window, can't make the Auto menu and Kern classes work. I click on them and nothing happens.

Mac OSX 10.5.8
Fontlab 5.0.4 build 2741
The font has 131 kerning pairs
Kerning classes defined

Any idea?

Those two buttons don't work for me, either, but you can access all the commands in them elsewhere.

All the items in the Auto Menu are also in the Tools menu at the bottom of the Metrics window:

All the items in the Class Kerning menu are also in the Class Kerning menu at the top of the Classes panel:

Occasionally the Auto Menu button in the Metrics window craps out on me as well.

Trash the preferences and restart the program and you should regain access.
