      Hello Friends,

       

      This would accomplish what I have manually done THOUSANDS of times, each time with the thought of how simple it would be to do it only one time at 4000% to perfection and then never again.

       

      In a clicked-into textbox, go HOME to the left of the first character;

       

      Go RIGHT to in-between the set of the next two characters:

      If characters to left and right of “cursor” are “Aa” . . . then apply total kerning value of -10;

      If characters to left and right of “cursor” are “Ab” . . . then apply total kerning value of -12;

      If characters to left and right of “cursor” are “Ac” . . . then apply total kerning value of -15;

      etc. etc. for about 500-to-1000 pairs

      etc. etc. for about 500-to-1000 pairs

       

      Loop and continue until the last character pair in the text box (headline).

       

       

      I could see volunteers doing a font each and life may be made much simpler.
