Setting the kerning simultaneously

Post by hyw91 » 01 Nov 2017, 01:49

hi, I'm using QuarkXPress2017 on mac.
In one paragraph style, I want to set the kerning of the text to -20, and the kerning of the number to -5 simultaneously.
Is there a way?
We are working on more than 200 pages of text. :o
It takes too long to change the kerning of numbers one by one.
Please tell me how to do it!

Kerning of text? Do you mean tracking?

If you mean tracking, just use a character style sheet for each tracking amount and automate it via conditional styles.

If you mean kerning, then you can either edit kerning pairs or – for digits – look whether your font has opentype features to not use tabular numbers.

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?
