I am trying to increase the spacing between letters in a word in Inkscape (version 0.48) by using horizontal kerning. I am not able to select the entire word and apply the kerning value at once. I need to do it for each word in the letter. Is there a way to adjust the spacing for all the letters in the word at once?
Adjusting letter spacing is called tracking. :) Hopefully this will help you find your answer if you ask elsewhere.
From the Inkscape Forum:
- Switch to the Text tool.
- Press Ctrl+a to select all of the text.
- Press Alt+> or Alt+< to adjust the tracking.
< requires a modifier for your keyboard layout, remember to press the modifier key as well.
To adjust the vertical spacing, perform the first two steps as above, but use Ctrl+Alt+> and Ctrl+Alt+< instead.
