6. In the text box in the metrics window (circled below right), type a few characters such as "AVA" or "AWA" or "To" to observe the effects of the kerning metrics. The font in this window has no kerning applied yet because FontLab reports the number of kerning pairs to be zero (circled below left).

7. Let's open the font again. Press the button on the Standard Toolbar or click File > Open... , only this time select the font suitcase instead of the printer font. Navigate to the font suitcase and click "Open".

8. Once again, click Window > New Metrics Window. This time we expect that the font metrics will have been imported when we opened the suitcase.

9. You can see that the kerning was imported this time. FontLab reports the number of kerning pairs to be 264 (circled below).
