I am sure this has been discussed before, but I could find nothing relevant.
Kerning is a time-consuming slog on large fonts. Automated kerning adds tons of useless pairs and classes that no one needs. (I use FontCreator 10.1).
Surely, there are OpenSource files somewhere with lists of kerning pairs used by different languages?
Does anyone kern lowercase-lowercase pairs? I add a few pairs for y, k- r-, and maybe ke, ko, etc., but by far the majority of pairs are for Uppercase-Uppercase, or Uppercase-lowercase pairs. I never add pairs for lowercase-Uppercase.
Automatically generating the kerning values is not difficult. The hard part is defining the kerning classes, and the kerning pairs.
