punctuation question with text tool
on Sep 13, 2006 at 6:45:40 pm

I am creating a DVD cover for a live concert and cannot properly make an apostrophe. Every time I hit the ' button it creates decent sized space between itself and the rest of the word. Ex. CAN ' T. All other typing works just fine. This seems more like a glitch to me rather than something I am doing wrong. Can anybody help me with this? I cannot finish the cover untill this one little thing can be corrected. Please help me!!

It sounds like you're using a mono-spaced font, or at the very least something is odd with the font.

There's a couple of possible solutions (other than using a different font). One, select the character and the one in front of it, and adjust the tracking to compensate for the problem. Two, create the apostrophe character on a separate layer, adjust the spacing of the N and T (tracking, plain spacebar spaces, or additional layers) and just line everything up that way.
