I'm trying to adjust this font file's letter spacing and word spacing to fit my needs to what I think it looks good, but it seems like it's not as easy as in CSS by simply strapping letter-spacing and word-spacing code lines.
It's been frustrating because, as far as I'm seeing, the only way to change those values is by manually adjusting each glyph. I can't do that. I don't know how and I can't afford someone to do that kind of job.
Is there a way to change those values easily, just like you can with Adobe or CSS? The values I want to replicate are these:
letter-spacing: -0.004em;<br>word-spacing: 0.005em;
Is it even worth the hassle? I'm trying to do this because the standalone font file as it is has weird word and letter spacing, but I'm trying so hard on this one because I want to implement it into my brand.
I would change this to: Have you reached out to the type designer/foundry that produced the font you using? If it is a small foundry, chances are they would be willing to do make this adjustment free of charge.
Is there a way to adjust the word spacing in the Adobe programs?
The tracking equivalent of your CSS would simply be -4. But if you are trying to implement this on a brand scale, then having to check if the tracking and word spacing is set every time could become annoying. So it may be worth returning to speaking with the designer/foundry.
It’s the Justification dialog, available from the Paragraph panel.
Despite what one might (quite reasonably!) assume, changing the preferred word spacing does indeed affect non-justified text as well.
a) Specify letterspacing/wordspacing in your brand guidelines document. I've seen examples of this a few times before, and from a designer's perspective I think it's helpful to have typographic details like this in your brand guidelines.
b) Try a different typeface that allows modifications, or one that already has the spacing you want. Inter might be a good candidate since it's free and open-source, so you're allowed to modify it.

The only problem I'm not sure if I'll be able to solve is using it as a system predefined font that, when toggled on, replaces all (sans) fonts in Firefox.
