The user guide to the Indy2 plug-in "EditOTFMetrics", bundled with FDK, states that the plug-in can handle metric editing for MM fonts and that an extra menu for selecting masters will appear in the EOM toolbar.

This extra menu don't show up when I load an OT kerning file and select a MM font so I suppose that the OT kerning file must have a special MM syntax which I can't find in the FDK documentation.

Any ideas?

Mårten,
You are correct in guessing that the kerning file needs to have the appropriate syntax.

That syntax is to have multiple values following the pos or sub statement, one value per master. For example:
pos T o <-79 -57 -101 -76>;

Antoine, is this in our docs anywhere? Or can it go in FDK 1.6?
