The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Is it possible to type a word and then move the letters closer together?

No it didn't work on a word typed in one go, it just moves the whole word.

Hi Ruth,

Here is a video by Heathenx on manual kerning and a written post is on my blog http://cuttingtime.blogspot.com/2009/05/text-kerning-in-inkscape.html

If you are using Inkscape version 0.47 or 0.48 you can do it another way as shown here http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=57.0 however, this method means you cannot change the font after object to path.
