Font Specific Tracking

While PageStream's default tracking tables will correctly adjust text spacing for most fonts, some may require custom tracking tables.

To adjust a tracking table for a font: Choose Tracking Tables from the Define submenu in the Edit menu. The Define Tracking dialog box will appear. Choose the font from the Font pop-up menu. Choose the table to edit from the Table pop-up menu. The tracking points for that font's tracking table will be displayed in the Range list box. Each point in the tracking table defines the track amount at that text size. Text size between tracking points will have a proportional track amount assigned to it. Any text size greater than the last tracking point's size will have the same tracking amount as the last tracking point.

To change the size or track for a tracking point: Choose the tracking point from the Range list box. Enter the new values in the Size and Track text box. The tracking points in the Range list box will be sorted based on the new size value. Note: The first tracking point will always have a size of 0pt, and the size can not be changed, and the point can not be deleted.

To add a tracking point: Click the Add button. Enter the values in the Size and Track text box. The tracking points in the Range list box will be sorted based on the new size value.

To remove a tracking point: Choose the tracking point from the Range list box. Click the Remove button.

To reset the the tracking points: Click the Default button. Note: Only the selected tracking table for the selected font will be reset to the default values.
