AutoCAD LT :: Character Spacing

Dec 2, 2012

I am using AC LT 2008.

When inputting Single Line Text or Multiple Line Text I want to reduce the space between characters.

I mean the space to the left and right of the characters.

I do not mean the space between the lines of characters.

In typography this is called kerning.

In MS Word this is known as condensing.

I am using Times New Roman as my font of choice.

Photoshop :: Text Character Spacing

Mar 29, 2013

I'm not sure if it's just me but is Photoshop supposed to have so much space between the characters in text? I've added a screen snippet of what I'm seeing on my computer with it's current settings. I'm not sure if I have something set wrong or not. This is a minor thing but it annoys the heck out of me knowing I don't have complete control over the spacing of characters.

Photoshop Elements :: Adjust Tracking (character Spacing) Of Text

Oct 15, 2011

PSE doesn't show the user all the text formatting capabilities available in PhotoShop, but this script can alter the tracking (character spacing) of the text on a layer.
Here are the steps to use the script:
Open Notepad.Copy this text and paste it into Notepad:/*<javascriptresource><name>Character Tracking</name><enableinfo>true</enableinfo><menu>automate</menu><about>Adjust the kerning.</about><category>Typography</category></javascriptresource>*/var targettext = app.activeDocument.activeLayer.textItemtargettext.tracking = 30
Use "Save As" with the File Type of "All Files" to save it asCharacter tracking.jsxin the C:Program Files (x86)AdobePhotoshop Elements 10PresetsScriptsdirectory.Keep the .JSX file open in Notepad.Start PSE.  You'll have a new menu item:  File...Automation Tools...Character Tracking.Create a document in PSE with some text on a text layer.With a text layer selected, run the Character Tracking script.To adjust the tracking, simply switch to Notepad and change the numeric value after the equals sign, save the file and re-run it in PSE.  (No need to close and re-open PSE.) 
You can use negative values, too -- any number between -1000 and 10000 is OK.
For example, here's the original:

Here the tracking was set to -50:
And here the value was 300:
It works on paragraph text as well.

AutoCad 2D :: How To Change Letter Spacing In Style

Mar 5, 2013

Im trying to change my letter spacing in my style and I cant seem to figure out how to do it. The picture here is my Autocad 2012 on the left and on the right is what I get from another company. How can I change my style so the lettering is more spaced out like the one on the right? This is not just for the tolerance box. All my dimensions have a similar problem where the text is not spaced out.

Such as if I make a dimension, it says "R.125" where there is no space between the "R" and ".125"

AutoCAD Inventor :: Pattern Component For Unequal Spacing?

Nov 9, 2012

Pattern component is great but sometimes I have to pattern the same part several times to different dimensions in the same direction.  For example: I have a part that has to go the left 26', then again at 29" and then again at 37".  Other than manuallly constraining this 3 different times I've had to Pattern Component the first one at 26", then change the 2nd one to Independent.  Then Pattern component that one to the 29" dimension.  Change that 2nd one to Independent and pattern component that one to 37".  It saves a lot of time but if I have to increase the model they are going on I have to start all over.  Is there a command or something that will do this?  I understand that a pattern is equal lenghs so maybe I am looking at the wrong command for what I am needing to do.

AutoCAD 2010 :: 2012 - Custom Paragraph Spacing

Sep 1, 2012

I just started working for a new employer as a 2012 AUTCAD Tech:  they have only used old school DTEXT for everything (what a pain compared to multi-text "MTEXT").

Problem: I converted several single line Dtext to Mtext (.075 test height) paragraphs but can not achieve the same spacing they have been using (.225) because .025 is not an availalbe increment in the parapgrah & line spacing selection.  Is there a way or a LISP that will allow me to add custom spacing choices to the Line/Paragraph spacing default list?

Then I can upgrade so much and work faster, yet maintain the standard spacing already set via snap grid settings.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Paragraph Line Spacing For Leaders

Apr 16, 2013

The text that we're using for the majority of our notations doesn't look very good at 1.0x scale so I try and adjust the paragraph line spacing to 0.8x as I go. I also know that if I create MTEXT and adjust the paragraph line spacing at the prompt it will "stick". However it doesn't stick for leaders and there's no real way of creating a permanent setting, is there?

Slight inconvenience of adjusting that setting each time I create a leader.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Base Line Spacing Operational

Nov 26, 2012

I normally use AutoCAD Electrical 2012 but my problem is AutoCAD so I thought I would log it here.In ACE there are default profiles for ACE and Vanilla AC.  I use the Vanilla AC for basic CAD drawings.

I like the feature "Base Line Spacing" for dimensions, to state the obvious,BUT  it I do some vertical dims then try to do some horizontal dims  (both in base line spacing) the software wants to stay in vertical BSL.

I can find is to create a standard DIM, delete it, then i can do a selection of horizontal BSL.Is this how it works in AC2012?  Or is it a function of ACE?  There are some other functions in ACE that do not work in standard CAD under the CAD profile.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Controlling Linear Feature Label Spacing

For linear features, expand the Advanced settings and specify Fixed to show labels at fixed locations relative to the feature. Select Repeat to repeat the label at intervals along the feature.

Using 3D Map 2012 this is a really great way to handle Labels for Linear Features..but is there a setting that allows the end user to set a Distance or Limit to control the spacing of these lables....?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Centerline Spacing Gaps Cannot Be Increased?

Jul 17, 2013

I am doing a small drawing with bolts and nuts. I wish to show the centerline visible, but with CENTER2, and selecting the line for Property, I changed the Linetype scale to .25. However, the actual line on the drawing doesn't show a centerline but a continuous line. See, figures below. I wonder if the gaps between the small dash and the long lines can be increased.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Change Font Line Spacing

Jul 10, 2013

How to change the line spacing for fonts in IV2010?

Reason I ask is b/c I had to change fonts from RomanS to RomanD, b/c the former font wouldn't print clearly enough for the shop and customer to read it (both in pdf and dwg/dxf).

The problem is, RomanD has DOUBLE SPACING as default, instead of the usual single spacing. I can't get the "Styles" editor to change the spacing in the VIEW LABELS and WELD SYMBOLS.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Line And Curve Table Spacing

Aug 16, 2011

Is there anyway to reduce the extra space in the table rows.  We finally ran into a situation on a job where the tables have to be smaller.  So we ended up exploding the line & curve tables and manually adjusting the spacing.... Exporting the table data to excell would be useful, but cant find a way to do that.  Reporting the line calls to html and copy clip to excell would work, but cant seem to do that either.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section View Grid Spacing?

Jun 4, 2013

I learnt that grid spacing in Section Views/Cross Section Sheets is controlled by the Bottom Horizontal Axes minor tick intervals and Left Vertical Axes minor tick intervals in the Section View Style dialog box(see Capture). If this is true what, then, is the function of the grid spacing settings in the "Plot Are" Tab of "Group Plot Style" dialog box (see the other Capture).

AutoCAD LT :: Hatch Spacing Too Dense Or Boundary Not Closed

Apr 25, 2013

I have a line drawing from a draftsman.  It was imported from some other program, but I'm not sure which.  However, this has cropped up many times over the years on my drawings as well as others.  It just is typically quickly remedied with a workaround.

The hatch spacing too dense issue requiring me to break up the area:  this problem will occur on equally sized areas at the same zoom factor at which I just hatched an adjacent area.  I have changed the "MaxHatch" variable environment from stock at 10k, to 100k, then to 1,000k; yet the problem persists.  I don't have a particularly fast machine so by that point I decided there was no need to max the variable at 10,000k. There are no z variables in the drawing though it appears, almost randomly, to have plines or lines along the same length of wall.

The second issue is the closed boundary.  This occurs on lines that are connected at all corners, even when I stretch and reconnect a line, though that is a very time consuming method.  When I increase the hgaptol variable it will hatch bizzarre areas that have no relation to what I am attempting to hatch.  This is also occuring even inside a REC that I created just prior to hatching due to error on the original layout.  I have to hatch an object rather than select an internal point.  It has become so obnoxious in this drawing that I decided to post with these questions.

AutoCad 2D :: Dashed / Dotted Lines - Spacing Too Wide?

May 11, 2012

I am having problem with drawing dotted lines. I know how to draw them but the spacing between them is way too wide.

Please refer to the attachment for more information.

How do I get them to be more narrower? SOLA4012 Pluto205.dwg is my .DWG file.


I am unsure if this is unit related. However, I have changed to "mm" setting. Yet, when drawing 1.000 unit of line it seems to be be 1 inch!?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Object Rotate And Spacing In Path Array

I have a polyline path and a rhombus. I will like to array the rhombus along the polyline path. As you can see from the attached file, as the object rotates along the path, it shift off the path such that the distance between the rhombus and the path changes esp at the turn. How can I keep this distance between the rhombus object and the path constant?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Curve And Line Table Spacing To Large

Dec 9, 2013

The vertical spacing in curve and line tables (the space between the text and the horizontal line) is too big.  This makes the table too long and hard to fit on maps.  For regualr tables, you can modify this.  However, for curve and line tables this is not available.   Is there a .NET file that creates/formats the tables that I could modify to reduce the spacing??

C3D 2012, but the same is true for 2014.
