Interesting, I was unaware that the values were directly embedded into the font itself. Kind of silly to think otherwise. I imagine it's just as easy as reading in the specific tables of the font itself. OTF as you said is more complicated so that would obviously be handled slightly differently. Thanks for the assistance SiCrane, I have a clear understanding of how I need to go about it.
Hello, Sorry if this is the wrong place as this is my first post. I need help with some understanding with kerning font values. I completely understand how font kerning works but I'm used to importing kerning values for a specific font through a file. Now what I plan on doing is writing a bitmap font creator ( I know they exist, it's just a side project). I'm planning on having similar functionality to what angel code does if anyone is familiar with that. What I'm thinking is there has to be some sort of lib. out there that contains kerning values for standard fonts and all their sizes. I refuse to believe that people just hard code these values into some ridiculously long file or multiple files. If that isn't the cases then how to programs such as... well any program that you can type in handle the kerning of multiple fonts and their sizes? Do they really just have multiple files for each specific case and load them in once the specific is set? Any enlightenment to this would be greatly appreciated.
