Hi guys. In today's video, I'll cut. We're gonna be looking at how to resize individual letters if let's say your font, um does not have a standard size between all the letters. But before that, let's have a quick intro first so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Uh, we have a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and also we upload training videos daily so you can just keep an eye there for new content. Otherwise, we're back in the programme here. Now, as you can see here, the X and this text a bit larger than the rest. And you do get some of these funds that the letters are not consistent in a size. So sometimes, you know you want this more consistent. You know, sometimes it's nice you're going for that stylist, um, effect. But let's say in this case you actually want all these letters the same size. Now, instead of breaking this apart and individually scaling it, there's a quick way we can do that. This will select your text, and then I would recommend make a copy of it. So I'm just gonna go control C control shift B to base in place, hide the back one and then we select this one again. Then under our text options which can be found here on the right text properties panel. We want to go here to size it by default, Understand it And we have a fixed height or fixed height and proportional fixed height will kind of stretch your stuff. So it's a similar height where I would recommend in my case, go fixed. High proportion will show you both so fixed height. As you can see now, the texts bit more distorted than what it was. And then if I just undo this and then it's going to fix high proportional, I can see it scales and unfortunately but cheque this now same size. But as you can see, this X is still lower than the rest of the letters, so we can address this. Unfortunately, after you do this, you will have to It's more destructive way of editing so the text will no longer be editable become shapes. So do you do that? We wanna in group this so you can see the control shift gears a shortcut or we right click here, go to one group or we go on top yet Object. And then you navigate your own group. And once it's on group, as we can see in our layers panel human, right now it is all in one, um, group. So what you wanna do? All right. See, actually, all these little letters yourself text. So, you know, I stand corrected. You can still edit the text. Then we're gonna do is let all be shaped with shift. It's a click and sleep all of them. Then we want to go to our styles and yeah, hostile position and size Uh, properties will be a slow Irish on the right And then everything selected we wanna go align vertical and then you get to the middle. It could go also the bottom But I clicked that, as you can see now, now, Texas actually, all the line, which is a It's a bit of a slip. Did I say to fix the font? But it is definitely the most, in my opinion, the best way to do it where it's kind of like you have a lot of freedom and you don't have to manually sit there and just sizes still it looks right. Let's all do it for whatever is in the text selected to save you a lot of time. But otherwise, if we head here to final cut pro a programme is freely available, here is just head to the downloads page. Otherwise, if we go to softwaretraining.co.za hat's the uh like I mentioned that the intro video. We do have a variety of different software to cover, and also you can isolate. Just search if you don't want to manually go through the list. And then if you don't find what you're looking forward, you can also go your request of training video and fill in the mini form. And then, yeah, we will make that video for you. But otherwise thanks, guys watching and cheers.
