[By Design] Kerning applied to last letter in Art Text Tool

Recommended Posts

1) place art text in your document

2) select art text using the move tool

3) apply generous kerning (e.g. 50%) using the ,character' button on tool bar

4) center text


Result: text is off center (shifted to the left) due to kerning space after last letter of the text


Workaround: not found, because kerning cannot be applied to single letters when using art text

This is not a bug Jens. To increase space equally between letters in a word/line you should use tracking. Kerning is used to fine tune the space between pairs of characters. If you want to change the kerning for a particular pair, place the cursor where you want to adjust it, press alt and use the cursor keys to increase/decrease the space between characters (you can also use the character panel to input a specific value).

In your example you can select the last character only and change/reduce the kerning or tracking to 0 to remove the extra space.
