Please make Optical Kerning the default instead of Automatic
Please make Optical Kerning the default instead of Automatic.
It's a draw on productivity when I have to change Optical Kerning to Automatic in each new document.
Going back to this — there is a way to modify Normal Paragraph Style and change the kerning value to Optical or even zero in Basic Character Formats, and then save it as a document profile one can later use to create new documents. The way is not obvious and requires creating a temp text object in the document profile first, ang them keeping the document backed up, to prevent overwriting, but the method works.
No, don't change the defaults. Font kerning is a data provided by a font designer. Ai should respect it even if it's bad.
But! Allow users to change the default if they like. As far as I know, the team works on this already..
So — no vote. It will be fixed eventually without it.
