  1. I'm finding the justification settings on Publisher not as good as my former layout app (InDesomething it was named…) Most of the time I get excessive space between some words, that not justify settings can correctly avoid, specially on paragraphs that doesn't use hyphenation (I have customers that don't want hyphens at all, ups!) The key difference I find from InDeapp whose name we don't say, is that it offers character horizontal scale settings inside the Justification settings. There, I can use a threshold from 97% to 103% (With 100% as preferred scale) and that makes for nice paragraphs with perfectly equilibrated word spacing. I suggest to add that option on Publisher, specially if is your intention to make it able to open that app files someday. It would be a nice and happy addition. Cheers!
  2. Dear developers, I have a problem with hyphenation: if I set Column end zone to big value, then I get a hole on end of column, but text set to Justify Left alignment. Need correct this hole, because I cannot align to right frame.
  3. Hi, I would like to format a piece of text so that it has a header non justified and then on the line immediately below it (no line break) to have fully justified text but each time I try to apply justification to the selected text it gets force onto the preceding lines too. Is there a way I can achieve this? Thanks.
  4. Hello I'd like to stress the need for a (very) good justification engine in Affinity Publisher, in order to produce high quality text-heavy publications. Because I'm not sure what the status on microtypography in Publisher currently is, I'll drop this info for your consideration. In the 1990's type designer Hermann Zapf and engineer Peter Karow developed the Hz-program, a justification engine which has gained a somewhat mythological status. Its algorithm combines multiline composing, hanging punctuation with word-spacing, letter-spacing and most controversial: glyph-scaling. Adobe has bought the patent, but it's not known whether they actually use the program in InDesign. You can however change most of these parameters (word-spacing, letter-spacing and glyph-scaling) in the justification engine in InDesign with a minimum, maximum and optimal amount. In my opinion, a paragraph composer with these settings, combined with extensive hyphenation settings are an absolute must for professional typographers. Some sources on this topic: - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microtypography - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hz-program - http://www.typografi.org/justering/gut_hz/gutenberg_hz_english.html Thanks for your consideration!
  5. Applying the "no break" option results in text expanding beyond the text frame. Happening since 1.7.0.58 version.
  6. I have got to be doing something terribly wrong with tabs. I cannot figure out how to use them. I have used so many programs over the years and have never had so much trouble. The only way I can see to add a tab is under paragraphs in the tab section. I can click on the little + tab and it creates a tab, but there is no rhyme or reason to the length. If I select the right justify and want it at say 3 inches and I have a three inches text box it breaks to a new line. If I shorten it, it does not go to the right edge. That is if the justification button even work. The the leaders do not show up.
  7. I was pleased to see that Designer has the usual six fields for justification: minimum, desired, and maximum for letter spacing and word spacing. However, letter spacing can't be set below 0%. This makes sense for word spacing, but minimum letter spacing is usually a negative value in justified text. I just checked in Illustrator and word spacing can range from 0% to 1000% while letter spacing allows -100% to 500%. Also useful (if typographically unwise) is a third row: glyph scaling. In Illustrator, this can range from 50% to 200%.
  8. Hey guys, I've noticed what I believe is a bug—a client requested using justified text instead of FLRR, so I gave it a shot. It condensed the text a bit too much, so I bumped up the minimum word spacing percentage to about 150% in the Paragraph -> Justification panel, and fairly often, this results in words being cut in half, with a stray first letter being left on the line above. Seemingly only way around it is just adding blank spaces in to move the character to the next line.
