Letter Spacing in AD for iPad

Recommended Posts

Not beyond the available options, even if you tap the slider, figures above the available ones can be entered but won't be applied when OK is tapped. You could try also adjusting the Kerning for each character which is under Text Positioning.

You can only adjust the kerning for pairs of characters. smartass.gif

I'm here to ask another question and have been reading through all the questions to see if it's already been answered. In the case the OP posted, the way I would handle this is to convert the type to curves, then space the individual objects (letters) using the alignment tools, then tweak if needed.

Which leads to my question: On AD iPad, how do you convert type to curves? I do this very, very frequently, and that desktop Cmd-Return gets used a heck of a lot. Is there an equivalent for the iPad, preferably gesture-activated?

Select the text and tap in the Edit menu to find 'Convert to curves'.
