Beta v. 139: Stylistic alternate messes up Morandi small caps

Recommended Posts

In my test document the stylistic alternate messes up my small caps using the Morandi fontgroup. This is new to v. 1.7.0.133.

Also other strange stuff is happening to text flow throughout my test document in the v133.

  • First letter in a heading word change size when capitalized.
  • Drop cap is misplaced, not inline with the following text.
  • Drop cap is indented despite line indent at 0.

Are all of those problems when you're using Morandi, or do they occur with other fonts, too?

I have tried with other fonts without replicating the problem. So it may be specific to Morandi. I can't find a font with a directly comparable alternate, so I'm not quite sure. Morandi should be a professionally developed font, and have worked flawless in InDesign, Quark, Designer, and in the earlier Publisher Betas (pre v .133). 

I attach a new screen capture for the problem now in v .139

This looks like the same issue as with my problem, which I had attributed to umlauts at first, but it seems to be a matter of Publisher’s handling of stylistic sets really.

Excellent! The above issue is now fixed in 145! :D

However, some new minor issues have appeared (not present in earlier versions).

Numbers set as small caps are now spaced wrong. There is a huge gap between numbers. This does not happen in normal text. Not sure what causes it, but seem to be restricted to page numbers in small caps or when using the automatic numbering of chapters/heading. I'm still using the font Morandi, but also found it with another newer font, Bely (see images).

Hi retexo,

I've just tried this using the Morandi font you uploaded and I don't get that! Would you be able to upload the files shown in the screenshot please so we can investigate those? I've attached a sample file using Morandi with Small Caps and Old Style figures.

Hi 

1) In the attached file I have made a master page, added auto page number and set that to 53 using the section manager (to get two numbers). 

2) I've tried to recreate the issue when using chapter numbering.

Or am I perhaps doing something wrong?

Thanks for that - I've reproduced it now! It does seem limited to automatic numbering so will get that passed on to development!
