The sidebar has a character spacing control which has 5 preset values - Very Tight, Tight, Normal, Loose, Very Loose - and it would be useful to have an UNO command for these preset values, so that it could be placed in the menu under Format > Spacing, as well as in the formatting toolbar as a group button.
@Szymon: Kendy said you were working on this. :D
Yes, I will work on this
@Szymon: Maybe the code in .uno:FontworkCharacterSpacingFloater would be helpful.

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
@Jay: See example commit for how to add this to the toolbar - would you please add it where it makes sense?
@Samuel: Thanks for the fix. If i had thought there was already an uno command for it, i would have done the fix myself. :D
It isnt needed anywhere else and the it hidden by default is great.
