Define and apply copyfitting rules with ease

Typefitter enables you to define copyfitting rules, then apply them easily via its powerful Copy­fit slider. Use Typefitter to quickly search your content to find common typo­graphic issues and see recom­mendations to fix them.

Deliver beautiful type, the easy way

Nudge Adobe InDesign’s Paragraph Composer to tighten or loosen text using Type­fitter’s intuitive panel. Create the best version of your text using Type­fitter’s Copyfit slider to quickly and harmoniously adjust word spacing, letter spacing, glyph scaling, and optionally, tracking.

Not sure what you’ve adjusted or by how much? Not a problem. Turn on the Copyfit text highlighter to reveal the relative tightness or looseness of text with variable tints. For more granular detail on text adjustments, click to expand the Copyfit section and reveal the precise justification or tracking values applied.

Uncover common typographic issues in seconds

Subtle changes in typography can impact the way your readers react to your content. While they may not realise when they’re looking at perfection, you'd better believe your readers will notice if your text is poorly set.

Enter, Typefitter! Quite possibly the best plug-in for Adobe InDesign, Type­fitter finds and recommends fixes for common typographic issues in your document; and with the Professional edition, Type­fitter can automatically apply those fixes in a single step!

Highlight distracting text rivers

Sometimes, the space between words can divert your readers' attention due to an unexpected vertical gap (or river) running through a paragraph of text.

Instead of squinting at your screen or turning a page proof upside down to see patterns and shapes in the text, simply enable Type­fitter’s white space river highlighter to reveal only those word spaces that more or less align across consecutive lines, and then use the Copyfit slider to adjust the flow of text.
