Chapter 6. Working with Documents > Changing Character Spacing

Changing Character Spacing

Kerning is the amount of space between each character that you type. Sometimes the space between two characters is larger than others, which makes the word look uneven. You can expand or condense the spacing to create a special effect for a title, or re-align the baseline (), which is the position of characters to the bottom edge of the text—this is helpful for positioning the copyright or trademark symbols.

Change Character Spacing

Select the text you want to format.

Click the Format menu, point to Font, and then point to Kern.

Click any of the following options:

  • Use Default. Uses default kerning.

  • Use None. Removes kerning.

  • Tighten. Moves the characters together slightly; you can repeat the command.

  • Loosen. Moves the characters slightly apart; you can repeat the command.
