    Question rip

    Does having a rip source is likely to be variations kering?

    example:
    We assume that there are two files HELVETICA REGULAR (or any other)
    one in the original version and another in ripped version,
    Does the ripped kerning is variant to the original?

    Excuse my question but I'm curious.

    apparently know that some characters are biased in the RIP, but the kerning ... also is altered?

    I don't know the answer for your question, but when we send a file to any rip the better is convert text to curves.

    possibilities:

    a) a rip have same kerning and other opentype features like original
    b) kerning features only
    c) no features

    open a font in fontlab, then you see, what features a rip have.

    Provided you have the font installed on your system when you make the pdf there should be no issue in a rip. Font inclusion is a pdf printer (use a good pdf virtual printer to make pdf's. This is better than any "save as" option) feature that can be turned on and off. If the file is going to be edited on another system it is better to include the fonts in your package. Converting your fonts to "curves", "outlines" or "paths" guarantees no changes of any kind. Many windows print drivers also have option for automatically converting fonts to bitmaps.
