Using the Fontwork toolbar

Make sure that the Fontwork toolbar is visible. If you do not see it, go to View > Toolbars > Fontwork.

Click on the different icons to edit Fontwork objects.

Image:FWSameLtrHIcon.png Fontwork Same Letter Heights: Changes the height of characters in the object. Toggles between normal height (some characters taller than others, for example capital letters, d, h, l and others) and all letters the same height. See Figure 6.

Figure 6: Left: normal letters; right: same letter heights.

Image:FWAlignIcon.png Fontwork Alignment: Changes the alignment of characters. Choices are left align, center, right align, word justify, and stretch justify. The effects of the text alignment can only be seen if the text spans over two or more lines. In the stretch justify mode, all the lines are filled completely.

Image:FWCharSpaceIcon.png Fontwork Character Spacing: Changes the character spacing and kerning in the object. For custom spacing, input a percentage value: 100% is normal spacing; less than 100% is tight spacing; more than 100% is expanded spacing.
