    Default Problem with Multiple Master font kerning in CS

    (I am running InDesign CS on Windows XP Pro. I have installed my fonts using ATM 4.1 Deluxe)

    Hello, all,

    I am fairly new to InDesign CS, although I have an extensive Quark background. I love InDesign thus far, with one exception that is driving me crazy:

    I'm working on a project using the Multiple Master version of Minion. Regular displays fine, but I need "367 RG 465 CN 11 OP" for my body copy. Unfortunately, this instance doesn't kern correctly at all. In fact, it seems to just be using the same kerning tables as it does for regular, which obviously leaves some serious gaps between letters. I have it set to kern with metrics, not optical.

    The funny thing is, "367 RG 465 CN 11 OP" kerns properly in Word and in Quark ... and it looks fine on the ATM preview. So it's just CS where I'm having this problem.

    Does anybody have any suggestions? I know a fair amount about fonts, but not much about Multiple Master fonts.

    Thanks to anyone reading this for taking the time ...

    Huh. Well, the problem is a new one on me, but I can suggest two things I'd try:

    - use optical kerning instead of metrics

    - use Minion Pro Condensed, the OpenType font which is equivalent to the instance of Minion MM you're using
