Kerning individual letters

HELLO LIGHTBURN: I wish lightburn had an kerning option that you could kern individual letters.

You can. Once you’re happy with your layout, convert the text to path and kern to your heart’s content.

Thank you, New to Lightburn. Use to Aspire. I converted to path, how do you increase or decrease the space between each letter in fine increments?

Set your Shape move increments to something small. I work in inches, and here is how I have mine set. If you want to “kern” text after converting to path, select the letter(s) you want to move, and then move them with either the arrow key, Ctrl-Arrow, or Shift-Arrow.

No, LightBurn does not currently provide “font kerning” features built into the “Text Primitive Object(s)” in the way you are thinking. As @Bonjour and @RalphU suggest, you will need to convert this text to paths, then move each leter to the location you’d like at this point.
