The help file states that spacing between characters(also known as kerning) is only available on the Mac version of PSM, but the truth is that there is a way to make it work on the Windows version.

In Microsoft Word, if you have a word that has some spacing between characters, you can simply highlite it and copy-paste it into a text object in PSM, and the spacing will be kept! Furthermore, if you type this in word: "@myvariable@", add some spacing between characters, and then copy-paste that in PSM, it will become a variable, so it is possible to have variable data with spacing between characters!

Have fun with this little trick! smile

It's worth noting that as of the latest version of PrintShop Mail 7, kerning has officially been implemented in the Windows version.

So I would recommend that any peoples that are still using version 6 and want to do kerning to consider upgrading to version 7, which has the feature built-in, and is therefore much more reliable than using copy-paste from Word.
