Turn on kerning in Word

Kerning is the letter spacing between two individual letters. By default Microsoft Word has this feature turned off and this might make some of your words look a little off.

Here’s how to turn on the kerning feature in Word. I am using my font Willow Bloom as an example.

1. Select the text you want to kern. Click ctrl+D or click on the little arrow to the bottom right in the font settings. Word will open up the Font dialog box.

2. Check the box next to ‘kerning for fonts’

3. Click ‘ok’ and you’re done!
