First character in text frame always visible

Recommended Posts

Just curious if this is by design or a bug. Create a text frame, type a word and reduce the width of the text frame until normally the first character won't fit into the box. Same applies to Publisher.

I don't see what you see, so there may be something more involved. For me, the remaining letters drop down to the next line as I narrow the Text Frame. That doesn't seem to have happened for you, which puzzles me.

I see all the letters remaining visible.

Reduce the height of the text frame that there is only space for one line of text. Maybe you will see what I mean.

I already tried that, but I will try your file to see how it behaves :)

Interesting. Yes, with your file I see the behavior that the excess characters disappear.

Here's my file showing just the opposite: The characters that don't fit in the width simply drop down a line and remain visible. I'm not sure what the difference is between our files.

Take the file into Publisher and you will see that the displaying of "overflow text" has been disabled in the OP's text frames


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Borrowed (and adapted) from Carter USM: "Then you reach that age - 53, 54 - your brain gives up, it waves a little white flag and without any warning at all, you're suddenly a stupid old man."

I could have sworn, that I created a text frame in ADesigner in the first place, right now I tried again and everything is fine. Please bury me. :$
