Designer | Kerning is wrong with some fonts


Recommended Posts

I compared the kerning of some fonts between Designer and Inkscape, and the difference is huge.

Here are my 3 fonts inside inkscape, typed as is :

And here are the same 3 fonts, same text, inside Designer.

Space between letters is way too important, but the one for "M" letters really stands out. I don't understand why Inkscape kerning is well balanced, and Designer... well, is totally wrong.

Maybe because of my fonts ?

Are they fonts you can share, or are they commercial fonts you had to pay for?

However, it seems Leisure Park is actually free. https://www.kernclub.com/shop/leisure-park-font

Unfortunately Chrome has actually blocked the .ZIP download, both from the site directly and through the order email in Gmail for security reasons.

Are you able to upload a copy of the .otf font file (not the zipped version) to the below link for me? I appreciate you cannot provide the other commercial font files.

Once uploaded, please let me know :)

Apologies for the delayed response - thanks for the files and further testing conducted!

I just opened my file in the macOS version of AD and the tracking is good. It must be a bug from the Windows version of AD, then

I can confirm I'm seeing the same behaviour and therefore I'm logging this as a bug with our developers now.

I hope this helps :)
