How do you isolate a letter after you create outlines from text, in InDesign?
I typed a line of text, then used the "Create Outlines" option. Next, I modified one letter (made it narrower). Now, I want to move that letter, and the ones to the left of it, closer to the other letters. But all letters in the line want to move at the same time. How do I isolate only the outlined letters that I want to move? (It doesn't work to use the Direct Selection tool.)
You have to expand the selection, zoom up and click each part of the outline, holding the shift key to allow multiple selections. Then when everything is selected, use the group option in the menu. For ease of use though, I suggest using illustrator for altering text styles, then copy into I design as a tiff. Failing that, place your text first, and only when you are happy with the placement should you create outlines and mess around with widths. I know this is a tad late, but hope it helps...
