I was wondering if someone could comment on something I don't understand about kerning.
My font is named "dugud". The attached image shows two words "offkey" then "iffy". The ligatures in both are in red. In "offkey" there's ligature sub for "ffk". In "iffy" there's a ligature for "ff".
Note the arrows above. I can kern between the initial "o" in offset and the following "ffk" ligature (black arrow). I cannot kern at all between the "ffk" and the following "e" (orange arrow).
For the word "iffy" the situation is the same. At the black arrow I can kern, at the orange arrow I cannot.
The type sample was created in Illustrator. If I turn off ligature substitution I can kern everything.
