Text jumps or disappears when moving text block


Recommended Posts

There is a problem with the text in a textblock,
if I move a text block, the text disappears or jumps in the text block, it must stay fixed and stay on the top of the textblock. The baseline stays not fixed!
This is very annoying and time consuming.
 
The leading override is also not working when we want to change the space (hight) between sentences!
 
How can we solve this?

Hi Frederic 73,

Welcome to the forums :)

Please could you provide a screen recording that demonstrates both of these issues?

Thanks

@Frederic73,

From your description I would guess one thing that might be causing this is a layer with Text Wrap applied to it. Another thing could be you have the jumping text block pinned, or something is pinned to something in the jumping text block.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Hi,

I discovered that maybe its when I paste text in the text block the text jumps and the leading override don't work. When I make a new text block and I type the text or I cope and paste the text block and write a new text then everything works perfect! Was happy to find it out. Just we can't paste text then the problem is there.

This is most likely due to a baseline grid being used. Turn it off for the date and the text should pop back into view.

The Baseline Grid Manager, which is for the entire document, is in View > Baseline Grid Manager. Each Frame Text text frame can have an individual one, with its own size, that is controlled by the Text Frame panel, this is the one I like to use. Also put a check on the View > Show Baseline Grid.

For the Document it is on off for everything,

and for the Text Frames it is per frame.
