Chapter 7. Typography > To remove kerning and word space tracking:

To remove kerning and word space tracking:

1.
Choose the Content tool.

2.
Highlight the kerned text.

3.
Choose Utilities menu > Remove Manual Kerning. This command has no effect on tracking values.

Some character pairs, because of their shape and how they fit side by side, have noticeable gaps between them. To ameliorate this problem, fonts have hundreds of built-in kerning pairs—character duos that are nudged together slightly. This pair kerning is turned on via the Auto Kern Above box in Edit menu > Preferences > Document > Character folder tab.
