In this window set the values for white space before and after the selected glyphs or use the fixed option to enter the exact left side bearing and advance width for the selected glyphs.

 

If Calculated is selected the white spaces before and after the selected glyphs will be modified.

If Fixed is chosen the left side bearing and the advance width will be modified.

 

Press the Finish button to return to the Glyph Overview window to check the result.

 

Note: Fixed is useful for the digit characters (0 to 9), which should all have the same advance width.

Note: The positions of the glyphs in the Glyph Edit window will not be changed, just the bearings.

 

Tip: In the Glyph Edit window you can step through with the Back and Forward blue arrows in the Drawing toolbar to check the result and make adjustments.
