Can this be scripted in 2 or 3 lines?:
Change tracking and kerning on all text in textbox to 0. Go to first character pair in text box.
If pair = Aa, set pair kern to -22; if not,
If pair = Ab, set pair kern to -32; if not,
If pair = Ac, set pair kern to -34; if not,
etc. I'll write a line for every character pair I desire to have kerned. If pair is found on list -- or if not -- then go to next pair to do same, until all pairs are done until end of headline text.
This is being done manually on an i7-chip-equipped PC on ID3 and ID6, so it'll be fast no matter how long the list is...
Many thanks, Joel:
This script was pointed out to me a long time ago but I never toyed with it as I just now did on your advice, since I couldn't understand it.
I tested it on a headline in its text box, but it came up advising all the fonts on the page that are missing (seeking to kern all of the page, I guess). Any way I could get it to do only the text box I've clicked into? Otherwise, I need not care about all the things it may do that do not apply to me . . . and it could be a lifesaver...
