TrueType Fonts Do Not Print Kerned

Q107227



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0





SYMPTOMS

If you format a font with the Kerning For Fonts option selected, the output on the screen will accurately represent the kerning option applied, but the fonts may not print out kerned. (To locate the Kerning For Fonts option, choose Font from the Format menu, and select the Character Spacing tab.)



CAUSE

If the kerning points size set in the Points And Above box is not set equal to the point size of the font, the fonts do not print out kerned. Instead of serving as a threshold, as intended, this setting serves as a fixed value.



STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for Windows. This problem was corrected in versions 6.0a or later of Word for Windows.



WORKAROUND

Set the Points And Above option equal to the point size the font was formatted for.

To obtain Word 6.0c, call the Microsoft Order Desk at (800) 360-7561 and request the Word 6.0c update. If you are outside the United States, contact your local subsidiary. To locate your subsidiary, see the Microsoft World Wide Offices Web site at:
