Enter a size for the text.
Use the kerning field to modify the spacing between letters and characters. You can select the Auto Kern option to set the kerning automatically based on the font’s predefined standard. A negative value decreases spacing between each character, creating a letter overlap and a positive value increases it.
Enter a value in the Indent field to increase or decrease the indentation on the first line of your text. A positive value sets the first line of your paragraph farther to the right and a negative value sets it farther to the left.
Enter a value in the Line Spacing field to decrease or increase the space between each line of text.
You can resize the text box by selecting your text box with the Text tool and moving the anchor point right or left. Using the Select tool will distort and scale your text itself rather than changing the width and height of your text box.
Text contained in a text field is treated as a single drawing object. You can easily separate the text so each character becomes an individual drawing object that you can select and modify independently.
- In the Tools toolbar, click the Select tool or press Alt + S.
- In the Drawing view, select the text object you want to break.
- From the top menu, select Drawing > Convert > Break ApartText Layers.
Each character is surrounded by a bounding box that you can modify; they remain text objects that you can edit.
- If you want to convert your independent letter to a complete vector object that you can deform, use the Select tool to select the letters to convert.
- From the top menu, select
Selected> Convert > Break Apart Text Layers to break the selection into a regular drawing object, with no more text attributes.
