Spacing in every font I set looks different (wrong) comparing to system display, notepad, paint, gimp, office. . .So in every apps Tahoma (and other fonts) looks same, but photoshop display it differnet.

 

That make work incorrect.

Just check attachement.

Hi there,

 

We're sorry for the extra spacing issue in Photoshop. Which Photoshop version do you have installed also, which operating system you are on now (Windows Or MacOS)? Are you seeing this issue after a recent update of Photoshop?

 

Thanks,

Mohit

Are you actually working at 72 or 96 DPI? What are the kerning settings? Metric or Visual? What else? you have to be more specific.

Photoshop is applying professional type kerning. The other programs are not doing any at all, or just different enough to pop a letter over one pixel left or right. You're not dealing with a lot to play with at that size and resolution.

If you notice, the "T" and "a" are tucked closer together to look better optically. Most fonts have these "metrics" programmed into them, but the program you're working with needs to know what to do to them.

If you want PS to match the others, you have to turn kerning off, by selecting "0", but then you lose the benefit of the better look.
