We are using Davis Sans on a website and found a bug in the kerning for some characters in heavier weights. I reached out to the font creator who said (and showed in Photoshop) that the issue isn't in the font but Adobe's conversion.

 

Below is a screenshot of Adobe's on preview tool displaying the issue:

The kerning between the capital "T" and "Y" and the following vowels is too tight.

 

Below is an example ("You") of how it's being seen on our website as well:

Below is a version from the font creator as they built it:

The issue is obviously not in the base font but with the version after Adobe "optimized" it. Does anyone know of the best course to get Adobe to fix the font on their side? I've been unsuccessful trying to get hold of support?
