ART TEXT OVERLAP

Recommended Posts

I am trying to put in authors name on the front cover of a book cover. I type in the first name and press enter for a new row and the text just overlaps over the top of the first name. I can’t figure out what is happening or how to fix it. Urgent help needed, Please!

Hi! If you’ve got a 3rd party typeface that’s got that bad design (it’s called leading), the easiest and probably the most pleasing way to make it look right is to duplicate the first line, move it down where it looks right and edit the text of the duplicate, and so on. That approach to art text will maintain the text size/style/weight/color. This also allows for great control over where the 2nd - 3rd line(s) can begin left to right, making the layout potential of Art Text more fluid.

It’s very unlikely you would run into this crashing problem with “box” type set to flush left, centered or flush right, so that’s another option, and the only solution for paragraphs of text.

Now all I would love to know is how to adjust individual letter spacing for display type. That’s called kerning, where you can put the blinking cursor either between two characters (preferred) or to select two characters at one time to then add or subtract units of space (measured in 1/100 M - the width of a cap M in each typeface). 

Does anyone know know how to kern in Photo or is it possibly only available in Designer ? I don’t own that one yet.

It’s in the Text Studio. Scroll down to Positioning and inside you will see Kerning:)
