  1. This has come up once before in the fora, as far as I can tell, but the kerning in Storyist for Mac is … apparently nonexistent. I realize that's probably a somewhat esoteric concern for some, but a properly kerned page onscreen makes the difference between smooth readability for editing, and having your eyes hang up on strange spacing between C's, L's, and O's (for instance). I'm aware that some typefaces, such as the monospaced ones, don't have this problem, but I don't find monospaced type particularly readable in any circumstance, particularly on any kind of screen. To me it looks as though Storyist is not using standard OSX tools for rendering type to screen, or the kerning would be handled automatically. This is something TextEdit and TextWrangler both do (of course neither is adequate for writing anything of real length), which suggests it's available for general use in the Xcode toolkit - so am I missing a setting someplace, or has kerning not been implemented in Storyist for Mac? Interestingly, this problem does not seem to appear on the iPad version.
