Spacing on 'marker' text

Jun 08, 2015


I'm working on a slide at the moment where we have marker icons that display text when they're clicked.

However, when previewing the slide the spacing seems change slightly, particularly when the word begins with 'W'. The 'W' seems to separate itself from the rest of the word, which looks like there is an extra space where it shouldn't be. I have attached a screenshot to show what I mean.

Does anyone know why this happens and how it can be changed?

Hi Sophie,

I've seen a similar issue reported to our QA team in regards to odd spacing with Arial and 8 pt font - it seems to behave better if you are to use 9 or 10 pt, or even a different font style. Are you able to make these adjustments as a workaround? 

I'll include this thread in the report filed with our QA team, but I don't have any additional information to share at this point.
