Step 4: Adjust Label Parameters

In the picture, we've manually placed the test label near the placeholder. Comparing them:

  1. Height looks OK
  2. Characters are too close together

Go back to the textlines tool and adjust the kerning. Kerning controls the extra space between characters. Characters too close together will look bad, especially at smaller sizes where the laser

kerf becomes significant.

In this case a kerning setting of 0.18 looked good.

<p>I really wish that I had access to one of these tools.</p>
