    Kerning for fonts (2000/XP)

    Has anyone noticed any problems with the feature, Kerning for fonts___ points and above available in W2000 at Format|Font|Character Spacing(Tab) ?

    I am evaluating whether to turn on this feature in styles contained in a template for a job where users of the template are distributed globally, and I am not exactly keen servicing any support requests because I turned this feature on.

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Hi Rajesh,

    The resounding silence on your question probably means that nobody has run into problems.

    I turn on kerning for all my styles, and don't understand why it seems to be turned off by default for all built-in styles.

    I also don't understand why you would want to turn off kerning at small point sizes. Common wisdom seems to say that unkerned text is easier to read at small sizes, but IMO it always looks stupid (and usually set it to kern "4 points and above").

    If you change that setting and update styles, the text flow of existing documents may change a bit, but it will also change on lots of other occasions (changing the printer or printer driver for example), so that wouldn't worry me.
