The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

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.
