Summary0000135: Microsoft Word Kerning
DescriptionWhen I apply kerning directly in Microsoft word (including making it the default, as well as highlighting text within my font from Birdfont and changing the settings to kerning for the text) the kerning that was applied when developing the font still doesn't apply.
Additional InformationCouldn't figure out how to drop you a note, sorry.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thank you for the report. I will see if I can find my old copy of Word and fix this.

I have tried to reproduce this with MS Word 2016 but kerning seems to work on the computer I am testing this. Kerning is turned off by default and in order to apply kerning to you text will you need to do the following things:

1. Select the entire text (Ctrl+A)
2. Open the typeface window (Ctrl+D)
3. Go to the advanced tab
4. Check the box labeled Kerning for typeface.
