Inkscape is a super flexible programme and one of its great functions is the many and varied things you can do with the Inkscape text tool.
But before we get carried away let’s go through these 4 basic techniques on which you can build. They are:
2. Letter Spacing
3. Line Spacing
4. Text on a Path
Here are a couple of images where I’ve used these techniques. First up an image where I’ve decreased the letter spacing on the word ‘Condensed’ to give it a condensed effect.
You can use letter spacing to fill dead space, align your lines of text up nicely or to tighten up words that take up too much space (as in this example).
Or you can increase the letter spacing to align with another line of text as above
