With most non-default fonts the space between words is too tight, so that one must remember to hit the space bar twice between every word. This is a struggle to remember to do that after using one space for so many years. This MUST be addressed but so far seems to have been ignored by Sparkol staff. Please fix this.
Couldn't agree more. This one caught me out and I had to find a way to do this being brand new.
I agree - word processing systems, use letter, word and line spacing to improve readability, and it varies by font. Scribble, for example, requires a lot of letter kerning to close it up, whereas other fonts have to spaced, A separate control for letter, word, and line spacing makes sense. I'm not sure about paragraph spacing control, because I would likely just create another text block for that, and animate it as a separate element.
Given that this is essentially a text animation tool,greater control is required if we are going to produce effective communications with this tool. This one shouldn't require a crowd sourced vote...it's fundamental to it's nature.
Hi Matthew and others.
Thanks for your thoughts on this.
You suggestions about more control over how fonts and text are displayed are currently with our development team.
We've been working on a major update to text and fonts over recent months and are getting close resolving this issue!
As this is a significant change and a long standing request we want to be sure we are doing things right. We're looking for a small group of beta testers to put the new version to the test. You will be asked to provide us feedback so we can ensure it works well before we release it formally to the whole community.
Does this sounds like something you would be interested in? If so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org telling us why you want be involved and we'll pick a few lucky people from the applicants we receive.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
We've released v3.6 of VideoScribe this morning which has some big changes to fonts and text, including kerning.
Find out more about what's included and also how to upgrade to this version via the v3.6 release notes.
