    Kerning in Keynote, not so much. :(

    oops! ... I wish Adobe did an "Indesign Lite", something that could be used to create presentations quickly, but had all the typographic adjustments.

    No kerning in keynote OR HTML. Tracking, but no individual letter kerning. Something that needs to happen if you want designers to be truly happy.

    There actually is kerning in Keynote, though it’s not that great:

    • Select the target letter(s).
    • Open up the Inspector (cmd+opt+I), and click on the Text Inspector.
    • Increase/decrease the “Character” percentage to your liking.
    • Quickly get trapped in the rabbit hole of adjusting the kerning of all other letters in the field, as Keynote’s auto-correction wreaks havoc with your copy.
    • Weep openly.

    I actually just figured out how to kern in Keynote. I'm wrapping up a presentation myself! Here's how to do it.

    Select the individual letter, and in the Inspector panel, go to the "Text Inspector" and from there you can adjust the "Character" slider. A bit of a hassle, but now we can kern away!

    Looks great so far, Jeffrey.

    Don't know what it is about the colors in that photo, but it's quite mesmerizing. Slay 'em at Penn State!
