What is the Kerning function in Silhouette text?

Is anyone able to explain the function of the Kerning Off/On in the Silhouette text panel? I have tried to apply it to text blocks, but I do not see a difference. I’m not sure what the purpose is.


The Kerning function is used to change the spacing between letters in certain fonts. Sometimes the change is so small that it is almost unnoticeable. Where it does make quite a difference is when used with Script fonts and wide fonts. It’s especially useful with Scripty fonts where there is a lot of space between the first letter and second letters. FYI - It is set defaulted to off in the software.


That’s very helpful! Thank you so much Julie!
