Having a new appreciation typestyles, I am discovering some significant limitations in my MS Works word processor. I would love to be able to change kerning and line spacing in very small increments. I can increase line spacing manually by inserting a line with no text and making its font size very small, but this is laborious, prohibitively so for large documents. Decreasing line spacing appears impossible. There must be programs out there that allow whole pages or paragraphs to be modified.
What options are there for someone wanting to do more advanced things with words on a page?
