Strange text behavior when exporting/producing PDF from InDesign
0

When exporting an InDesign file to PDF, I noticed on several occasions,
that text is shifting when I used the " Indent to Here special character".

InDesign moves the first (few) words to the right by appr. one space.

Did you ever encounter this problem and is there a way to solve it ?

The only solution I know is to print to PostScript file and to process it with Distiller. I hope Adobe will correct this bug one day...

We tried a quick test, using ID CS4 and ID CS2 & couldn't get the problem.

Just out of curiosity, what versions if InDesign and Acrobat were you using?

Could be corrupt font caches, or multiple installs of the font(s) used. Clean up and try again.

I faced the behavior described by fonthausen several times, regardless on fonts used. The combination of customized bullets (custom font & color) and Indent to Here command keeps me stressed as it appeared in one printed book I design. I didn't notice the problem when checking PDF files. No I always doublecheck all pages where I use customized bullets and indent. The other solution is not to use Indent to Here and rather use negative values for first line indent.

I am using Indy 4.0.5 (osX)

Actually a collegue showed me the problem, which I never had seen before.
After creating a whole new document on my own computer, the error occured here as well.

I did yesterday.

After having answered some technical question, they shut down the case.
They told me to call the helpline, because I was using Indy CS 2 and not cs 3 or 4 ...

:-(
