Chapter 5. Working with Text > Modifying Tracking and Kerning

Modifying Tracking and Kerning

Sometimes the space between text characters can appear awkward or perhaps increasing the space is a creative solution. Flash provides methods for adjusting these spaces, called kerning and tracking. Tracking is the space between characters and words on a single line and adjusting tracking affects the entire line. Kerning deals with the space between any two characters and adjusting it will only affect that space. Many Fonts contain built-in information about problematic character pairs. Flash makes use of this information when you turn on Auto Kern in the Property Inspector.
