East Asian Type Options: Customize Your Text

 

  • Enable East Asian Type Options in App settings > General.
  • For CJK languages, these options are ON by default, ensuring you get the best out of vertical text composition.
  • For other languages, they are OFF by default, offering flexibility to choose your text direction.

 

Text Direction: Tailor Your Typography

 

  • Experiment with different text directions to match your creative vision:
    • Upright: Characters are upright in vertical text by default in Fresco.
    • Sideways: Characters are rotated in vertical text.
    • Tate-chu-yoko (TCY): A block of horizontal text within vertical lines, enhancing readability for numbers, dates, and foreign words.
  • Apply text direction to the entire text layer or specific ranges for precision. To cancel an alignment, apply any one of the other Vertical Alignment options.

Kerning Model: Refine Your Typography

 

Customize kerning to achieve the perfect visual balance in your text:

 

  • Metrics-Roman Only: Applies kerning to Roman fonts but not Japanese fonts.
  • Metrics: Utilizes pair kerning info in Roman fonts; if unavailable, it behaves like proportional metrics.
  • Optical: Adjusts character spacing based on character shapes for optimal aesthetics.
  • Learn more about Optical vs. Metric Kerning here.

 

 

New Additions: Manual Kerning Option

 

With "Enable East Asian type options" ON, enjoy manual kerning, providing you with complete control over your text's spacing and aesthetics.
