    WHAT “TRACKING” IS

    When one lends graphic pagination, which will follow the printing of magazines, books, catalogs, newspapers, etc., it is important to bear in mind, among many other things, the “tracking” or the spacing between words. The “tracking” allows you to easily find the head and tail of a line. The right values to be assigned in the spacing should not be less than the space occupied by the letter “i” and should not be higher than the space occupied by the letter “e” (of course the same font and font size used for text). The acceptable maximum spacing can not exceed the average width of the letters of the alphabet used. The professional software for text processing are standard spacing that can be easily modified to graphics needs. However, the good rule says that the space between words should never be greater than the space between the lines.
