Baseline Grid issue - 1.7.0.376

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Latest version introduces a baseline grid issue when combined with Justify Vertically. I have a two column text frame that has text which is not supposed to align to baseline grid, but when I do justify vertically the first line tries to align to baseline grid (even though it's not supposed to) and ends up with a strange overlap.

Here's a screenshot...2054420807_ScreenShot2019-06-05at1_31_31PM.thumb.png.877f42d198d5875fcbf12441daafbaaf.png

I find this behaviour if my text is Based on some style which has Align to baseline on. I turn off the Align to Baseline Grid in that Paragraph style and it will try to align. Height of the text frame matters as does choosing any Vertical Alignment other than Align to top.

Try it with No Style or a based on No Style paragraph style.

While a lot of the text in this report is using the baseline, that text has a style applied with Align to Baseline Grid turned off. I confirmed this both in the style itself and in the Paragraph Studio Palette. That's why it's particularly strange that if you do justify vertically the first line jumps to the baseline grid.

I should add that this behaviour only just cropped up—it wasn't present before I downloaded the latest Publisher beta.

Pretty sure it’s a quick fix.

Cue ominous music...

I'm working on a book with baseline grid. Is it possible, to add additional textframes who are not fixed on that grid in the same page?

We have a candidate fix :) 

Like in John Frankenheimer's "The Manchurian Candidate"? Let us hope not.

Great movie all the same.

Here you find the „text frame“ panel:
