InDesign rag question
0

hi all,

I've been having this issue with inDesign lately. I am setting a
paragraph left-justified, ragged right. Hyphenation is turned off,
and snapping to a baseline grid is turned on.

InDesign will send words to the next line which I am quite certain
will fit within the column measure. And there is no manual carriage
return.

Does anyone have any suggestions to address this?

thanks much,
jarrod

Wait until all copy edits are finished and add a few points to extend the text box for the word.

James,

Why would I have to add points when it's clear that
the word should fit within the column as is?

In the paragraph drop menu switch from Adobe Paragraph Composer to Adobe Single-line Composer, another example of Adobe’s nannying.

It is considering every break in the paragraph and giving you a bad line it calculates to be the lesser evil.

What timd said.

Additionally, there is another command in that menu, "Balance ragged lines," which might come in handy now and then.

Adobe's nannying, I like that.

Now if only they'd get kerning tables!
