Hi, I made a font in Illustrator, but I'm having a problem in Font Forge so apologies that it's not really an illustrator question. FF forums are very quiet.

In FF, my font looks fine.

Looks ok in FF.jpg

he kerning is set up to allow 84(units) to the left and to the right of the digit. And the font looks fine in the preview, however the moment I start using it in other applications, I get this:


So quite obviously, the 7's start half way from the last character. I have tested it with other characters and any character after a 7 starts from the middle of the 7. For some reason the 7's only start half way up from the previous character for 8's.

Does anyone who uses font forge know what is causing this?

The other thing I don't understand is why my font doesn't show up in MS Word? Also, the font works fine in Illustrator :S.
