Publisher won't let me bring these two lines of text together.

Recommended Posts

Publisher won't let me move the two parts of the text at the end of page 30 in the attached .afpub together. When I try to place my cursor at the end "verage" and backspace it up to the a on the previous line, I can't get the cursor into the right spot. Any suggestions?

You have a Baseline shift applied seemingly at random. I would suggest you select all the text and set it to 0 instead of having to deal with this cropping up somewhere else. Look at the little grey dots, those are the spaces.

To add to the confusion, on some sections of text you've got a Leading Override of 12.5pt combined with a Baseline Shift of 12pt. 

This is what's causing the problem you posted about - they're pretty much cancelling each other out for most of the text, but after the word 'value' you've turned off the Leading Override and the text has jumped forward. That's why the paragraph break mark after 'value.' is floating over the 'a' of 'acres', and why you've got the odd jump a bit further on.



Turning off the Leading Override would probably fix it, but you're probably better off turning off both.
