How to suppress Fontlab dialog about regenerating OT kern table

butterick's picture

In Preferences: Generating OpenType: Kerning, I have checked the option that says "Generate OpenType "kern" feature if it is undefined or outdated."

Nevertheless, whenever I generate the font, at the end it pops a dialog saying that the kerning has changed and do I want to regenerate the OT kern feature. Yes Fontlab, of course I do.

How can I keep this dialog from appearing?

Head FontLab off at the pass. Before you generate a font, as a matter of course select TOOLS > KERNING ASSISTANCE > Rebuild [kern] feature...

That's an even longer step than the step he's trying to get rid of!

You might not want to regenerate the kern table, if you have removed the kerning info everywhere but the OT feature, in order to make a font with only OT kerning.

Problem is that the answer is not always "of course I do", like when generating kern feature with other tools than FLS5, when the answer is "of course not". :-/
