on MAC OS X desktop

In Adobe Programs

  • Use the Built in Kerning - Be sure to use the font's built‑in kerning by verifying the “metric” kerning is “on”.

    • To do this: SELECT “METRICS” (in the kerning option), FROM THE CHARACTER PANEL;

  • Reset Tracking - Verify the tracking is reset to “0”. You can do this in the Character panel;

  • Update Software - Make sure you have your Adobe Programs Updated to the most recent version.

  • Turn “off” or “on” Fractional Widths - By default, the software uses fractional character widths between characters. This means that the spacing between characters varies, and will sometimes use only fractions of whole pixels. In most situations, fractional character widths provide the best spacing for type appearance and readability.  But not always, so to turn it “off” go to Character Panel > Click on the menu option (top right) > Choose “Fractional Widths”

  • Choose “All Classes” Filter - Have you ever installed a font, and just can’t find it in your Adobe software dropdown font list? Verify in the Characters Panel, that "All Classes" is chosen, which will display ALL your installed fonts irregardless of what class they are in, and this ensures that none are hiding. To do this, so you can find any and all fonts after easily after they are installed. To do this go to the Character Panel > Open the font drop down list > you will see a new option “Filter” which should have “All Classes” chosen. If it doe not, simply choose it from the drop down option in the “Filter”
