How to align letter next to each other properly (not top/bottom)?

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all of you in this great forum, I'm moving along with my t-shirt designs. Really grateful.

So let's say I'm doing a single word for the design. I know how to align the top and bottom and arrange as well. But how do I ensure there is equal space between the letters? I've just been eyeballing it and I'm sure there is a better way that is as precise as using toolbars for the top and bottom. But I couldn't find anything when I searched.

Thanks,

Susan

Thanks. I'm not sure this is what I need. I did use the Artist shape tool and understand how to work with it and convert to curves, etc. I am typing on a straight line, but my question is about spacing between letters. For instance, if I am typing the word "dog" as three different letters of artistic text, not one single piece, then I need to align the "d" next to the "o" next to the "g."

I'll look further at your suggested links though. I appreciate the help.

Susan

Kerning?

Unfortunately, kerning would work if I typed all the letters at one time, but it's more about taking objects (each individual letter is an object) and placing them next to each other. Thanks.

It's worth adding to that by saying if you turn off Auto Distribute, you can drag the slider to control the spacing between the letters dynamically.
