Lesson 7. Working with Type > Changing the character size

Changing the character size

Now you'll use the Character palette to make the title bigger.

With the Tai Chi type still selected, choose Type > Character to display the Character palette.

By default, the Character palette displays the selected font and its style, size, kerning, leading, and tracking values. If the type selection contains two or more attributes, the corresponding text boxes are blank. (Leading is the amount of space between lines or paragraphs. Kerning is the space between two characters. Tracking is the spacing in a string of characters.)

Figure . A. Font Size B. Kerning C. Leading D. Tracking


Type 125 in the Font Size text box, and press Enter or Return to increase the font size to 125 points.
