How to set Tracking/Letter Spacing
« on: 2014-03-26, 00:37:46 »
Hello,

I've been through the user manual, these forums and google but have not found what I'm looking for. Is there a way to adjust Tracking/Letter-Spacing in TypeTool3?

I've set up the metrics and like the kerning of the letters but I can not figure out how to set up the space between words. i.e. when I hit the space bar. It just uses the metrics of that letter combination which would be incorrect.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Select the space glyph and type in a value.  Revise that value as you see fit.  You can also drag the right sidebearing of the space glyph to wherever you wish in the glyph window.

I can't express how foolish I feel having not noticed the space glyph. Thank you.
