Change the spacing between characters

  1. Select the text you want to change.
  2. On the Format menu, click Font, and then click the Character Spacing tab.
  3. Do one of the following:

ShowExpand or condense space evenly between all the selected characters

Click Expanded or Condensed in the Spacing box, and then specify how much space you want in the By box.

ShowKern characters that are above a particular point size

Select the Kerning for fonts check box, and then enter the point size in the Points and above box.

 Note   Selecting Expanded or Condensed alters the spacing between all selected letters by the same amount. Kerning (kerning: The adjustment of the spacing between two characters to create the appearance of even spacing, fit text to a given space, and adjust line breaks.) alters the spacing between particular pairs of letters.
