Changes in Leading: Leading is the vertical distance from the bottom of the words above to the top of the words in between two lines of text. We can make a font’s leading tighter or looser based on your need.


Changes in Tracking: Tracking, which involves horizontal spacing, refers to the adjustment of spacing throughout entire words. We are able to adjust the tracking of your fonts to make the total space individual words use either smaller or larger.
