Godot 4: How to change the character spacing of a True Type font?

In Godot 3 there were many options to adjust a TTF in the inspector. One of these options I used is the Char spacing (Theme Overrides / Fonts / Font / Extra Spacing / Char) to adjust the distance between characters on a label.

In Godot 4 these extra spacing options don’t seem to exist. If I double-tap the font file in the File System tree I get other options, but nothing seems to allow me to adjust the character spacing.

Has TTF character spacing been implemented in Godot 4 yet?

I’m new to 4.0 and don’t know, sorry. I have found that my former 3.0 project didn’t work with it, so I’m editing it with 3.0 still. Is this an option available to you?

Select your label set its theme_override_fonts/font property as Font Variation then you can use Extra Spacing / Glyph

Wonderful! Thank you very much, most appreciated.
