Default Specific font settings

Hi everyone!
I just spent a nice amount of money on some very special fonts.

The developer told me they are "programmed" to work in InDesign and graphic progs.



In Word the letters are much too "tight" (spaced between letters too small). He is blaming this on the way Word handles OpenType fonts. Whether he is correct or not is really not relevant.

I can "fix" the problem by adjusting the spacing in advanced parameters of the font dialogue. It looks ok.

But I was wondering if there is a way to tell Word (besides applying a custom style) that every time I use FONT X give it a bigger spacing between the letters.

Just makes things easier for a lazy girl like me...

Susan

That's what Styles are for. There isn't another option.

That's why Styles were invented, so that you don't have to spend time changing various settings each time you want to format something.

Yes, you may be thinking creating a custom Style is hard. It can be as simple as taking the custom spaced text you already made, selecting it, and creating it as a new Style with a couple of clicks. It's the time- and effort-saving equivalent of not having to reload your paint brush over and over, by using a paint sprayer.
