Publisher 1.8: Is there a way to force ligature in justified text alignment?

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to force Publisher to always use ligature in words when using "justified" text alignment?

Even when tweaking "Word spacing" and "Letter spacing" in the Paragraph/Justification section, there are always cases here and there where Publisher decides to use letters with no ligature.

I would like to tell Publisher to always use ligature, whatever he thinks looks the best.

Thank you very much for your help!

Thanks for reporting this!


I first thought this could be something related to hyphenation but it happens even if hyphenation is turned off, and as shown above, left justified text has ligatures on even at hyphenated words, so it really is just a problem with justified text.

I also tried this with other applications (InDesign, QuarkXPress and Xara) and it does not happen there.

Thank you for your answer. Indeed, I have this problem with or without hyphenation, and only with justification mode.

Then, should this thread be moved somewhere else in order for this bug to be verified?

Kind regards.
