Hi!

I feel unsure about asking this question, because maybe it's already discussed here; but as I'm not english and don't know how to say what i seek for, i couldn't perform an efficient search Smile


Well, all is in the title; i need to change the space that's between every single character.
In french we call this inter-letters.

Is there a way to edit this in OOo?


Thanks!


Alex.

Modify your paragraph or character style, select the "position" tab and set a custom character spacing

I can't find it in my french version!
It's not new from 2.2.1, is it?

Could you precise exactly what is mentionned in the tab where you can change that?
For that i can identify it in my french ver?


Thanks,
Alex.

Thanks!

Funny, it's in mine for paragraph styles too. Both versions 2 and 2.2

The spacing setting is in the paragraph style, not the paragraph format. If you right-click in a paragraph and select Paragraph, there is no Position tab. Right-click in a paragraph and select Edit Paragraph Style then click the Position tab. If you modify the Default paragraph style, any other styles linked to the Default paragraph style will also have the modified spacing.

For the record, in English it's called tracking (although OOo doesn't use this term). If done individually for each pair of letters it's called kerning.
