Kerning of ligatures in Arabic Script!

arifkarim's picture

I have a few urdu ligatures that I wanna kern automatically. Only problem is: I dont know how to do it! I have seen snaps of Aziz Mustafas ''Reyhan.otf''. Although he hasnt use many ligatures, still his kerning was good between words.... Thats why I am begging u professionals for some advice in kerning of several ligatures. I have following font editors installed: FontLab, FontCreator, Fontographer....

Thnx....................

->What do you mean by “kern automatically”?

Bro, its simple: Automatic kerning is just like u kern latin alphabets in fontlab or fontographer.... Problem is I cant do the same thing for arabic/urdu ligatures... Any assistance?

My guessing is that you don't set the directionality in RTL in the preview of Fontlab and it does it the wrong way.

Or maybe he just don't know how to use classes for kerning similar glyphs?
