In Hebrew, there are some diacritics which occasionally need to be combined. However, a frequent result is that they will all be centered, leading to a stack of characters which need to be re-kerned. For example, the meteg (אֽ) a vertical line used to indicate syllabic stresses (when not final) often migrates so that it crashes with the vowel diacritics (אַ, אָ, אֶ, and אֵ). (This also occurs with some cantillation marks)
Is there a way to individually kern the meteg to avoid crashing type? For some reason, my attempts to use the kern tool in the character palette invariably do not succeed.
An example of text where this may occur:
אֱלֹהִ֑ים (where the esnachto crashes with the chirik)
מֶֽלֶךְ (where the meteg crashes with the segol)
