KernEdit is program used to create kerning tables for screen fonts (Font/DA Mover files). Since most fonts shipped back then had no kerning tables or very poor ones, you had to do a lot of manual kerning for every document you wanted to look at least halfway professional. But Apple provided no way for users to do that, so Pairs Software stepped in to fill that gap.

It's a very small program and it has rudimentary help available. It requires Mac OS 6.0.2 or higher, and it does work in Mac OS 9.2.2. Note that if you have Adobe Type Reunion installed, you must disable it or KernEdit will not run.

The download is a .image file that's been compressed with StuffIt 5.5; you can use Disk Copy 4.2 to write it back to a floppy, or you can change the extension to .img and open it in your version of Mac OS and then Drag-Copy the files to a folder on your Classic Mac system.
