New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
when a font has a confusing menu/font/file name, a colleague of mine opens the pfb file with FontLab 4.6, changes the font infos and generate again the font, with new afm, inf, pfb and pfm files.
Since kerning data are stored in afm and pfm files and FontLab opens only the pfb file, I fear this process can lead to a loss in the original kerning infos.
My colleague says FontLab automatically search for metric files in the same folder where the pfb files are: so when he generate the font FontLab use the original metric files to create the new afm and pfm files.
What do you think about it?
