Kerning in Metrics Window is Incorrectly Displayed #3400
The generated font shows them touching, not overlapping. My main confusion is the metric view is showing different visual kerning results compared with the kerning class page or kerning pair closeup page. Not even with a weird font.
The generated font seems to follow the intended kerning where it can (the dollar sign example boxes are perfectly spaced). The overlapping m doesn't seem to work and instead is generated without kerning.
See attached (I'm still trying to get the hang of FontForge, so I'm just trying to understand it with a toy example):
Again, it is a visual problem in the metrics window. The kerning seems to render fine, but I can't test out the font in the metrics pane without getting misleading results...
