Chapter 9. Trading Spaces: Text, Text, Text > Reset Kerning and Tracking

Reset Kerning and Tracking

We showed you in an earlier tip how to reset all the settings in the Character and Paragraph palettes (choosing Reset Palette from the respective palette’s flyout menu). If you want to keep everything else as-is but reset just the kerning and tracking to zero, here’s how: To reset the tracking, highlight your text with the Type tool (T) and press Command-Option-Q (PC: Control-Alt-Q). To reset the kerning, click the Type tool where you’ve adjusted the kerning and use the same shortcut. Needless to say, make sure you’ve got the Option (PC: Alt) key held down, or you’ll get a very different result!
