In this mode of operation you can fine-tune the separation between
characters (horizontally and vertically). Switch into Kerning mode by
pressing the [Esc] key once. The cursor will now appear in an
shape. You can move this cursor with the arrow keys in the usual way
and position it between the two characters whose separation is to be
altered. If you now use the arrow keys while keeping [Shift] held
down, the text to the right of the cursor will be moved by one screen
pixel in the direction of the arrow marked on the key. If you hold
down the [Control] key while pressing the arrow key, the movement will
be by 8 pixels. With [Shift]+[Control] you can move the text by 32
screen pixels. The movement will of course not be saved in screen
pixels but calculated to take the current display magnification into
account, so that the WYSIWYG principle is retained. The larger the
magnification of the screen is currently set, the smaller the actual
displacement of the lettering will be.
Be aware that kerning moves all the following letters in the line; this is perhaps obvious for horizontal movement, but applies to up and down movement too!
To return to Text mode, just press the [Esc] key again.
