Fonts are not refreshed when right sided metrics are changed
This issue happens in the context of editing the metrics of a font file multiple times (in order to view new metrics changes in realtime).
Fonts will not always be refreshed to the latest version when overwriting a font file in the Adobe Fonts folder with a new updated version:
When a right sidebearing of a glyph is changed and the font regenerated, the font is NOT updated in Illustrator.
Whereas editing a left side bearing and regenerating the font will show the updated font with all edited metrics (both the new left & right sidebearings).
Issue happens in all CC versions, including CC 2020 24.1
Thanks for reporting this issue.
Unfortunately we are not able to reproduce this issue. Could you kindly provide the following information to help us nail this down.
1) Kindly share both version of fonts at ShareWithAI@adobe.com .
2) Please mention the title of this issue as the subject of the mail with tag [UserVoice] and Uservoice link in subject of email.

I have the same bug using Fonstelf in Illustrator CC 24.3 on Mac OS 10.14.6 with kerning options :
When I change the kerning setting of a letter and click the "Install" button of the Fontself extension, the font is not updated in illustrator.
