Adjust Type Size Incrementally

Recommended Posts

Really would like to be able to adjust type size incrementally, same as with leading, kerning, etc. Routinely need to make minor adjusts to type size. I realize that I can "size" the entire  type element, but really need to be able to "bump" the size by point, especially when changing a single character or two.


At this point, I can't really see how to change the point size of a single character other than to use the Scaling % (which doesn't seem to do the same thing (proportional point size increase/decrease), or manually type in the point size (which requires doing it several times for each character to get the right size/look).


Liking most of what I'm seeing in AP and hoping to retire my PS once and for all. 





Edit — Aha! I see under Text Formatting keyboard shortcuts for increasing/decreasing text size, although the shortcuts shown seem misleading. Shows CMD-> but it actually takes CMD-SHFT->. 


Okay workaround, but would still be nice to have the incremental button in the Character point size panels & toolbar.
