Monotize is now part of TYPE!

Make any text monospaced

How it works

Step 1. Add monospacing


With a text layer selected, click the "add monospacing" button. You can also remove monospacing with the other button.

Step 2. Adjust spacing


You can adjust the spacing between characters under the Effect Controls of a text layer with monospacing.
If the alignment seems off, make sure your text layer is set to Metrics instead of Optical.

Step 3. Add variable spacing (optional)


If you hold shift while clicking the monospace button, it will add a Variable Spacer.
These allow you to set unique spacing for a specified range of your text.
