Caps, allow adding kerning pair

  1. Describe your reason for requesting this feature. What problems are you running into?

Maybe I'm just missing this... but it seems I can only adjust kerning on pairs that the auto-kerner spit out.
If I want to add an adjustment on a new pair, I can't figure out how to do that.

Is it possible? If not, can it be please? :smiley:

  1. How would this request improve your experience developing for Playdate?

Make it possible to hand kern specific letter pairs as necessary.

  1. Include any other details you have relating to this request.

Thanks!

The (probably not yet documented) way to do this right now is to click on the kern pair in the preview. So when you want to create and preview a new pair, put those characters in the preview box. I hope that helps!

Oh boy. Yea – I don't think anyone is going to discover that :smiley:

Even after you told me to look for it, it took me a while :wink:

I ended up doing it by exporting the font, and adding the kern pair manually to the list, then re-opening it.

Yea +1 this. It would be great to have a button that says "+ Add Pair" on the Kerning screen. I checked Caps docs and PD docs but ended up finding my way here after fumbling around
