Vertical alignment of text is wrong when base line grid is activated

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am running version 1.7.1.404 of Publisher and experiencing an issue where text is not vertically centered correctly when the base line grid is activated.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new document and add a text box with some text.
  2. Set vertical alignment of the text box to "Centered".
  3. In "paragrah options -> base line grid" uncheck the setting "Align to base line grid".
  4. Note that the text is vertically centered correctly as one would expect (the base line grid is not activated yet). See screenshot 1.
  5. Open the base line grid menu and activate the base line grid by checking the corresponding check box.
  6. Note that the text is not vertically centered correctly, it is not in the exact center of the text box. See screenshot 2.

Screenshot 1 (base line grid deactivated -> Text vertically centered correctly):

Screenshot 2 (Base line grid activated -> Vertical alignment of text is wrong):

If I check the "Align to base line grid" option in the paragraph menu, the text will be aligned to the base line grid. in this case I don't expect the text to be vertically centered exactly, because it has to align to the grid.

But if I uncheck that option, the text of that particular textbox does no longer need to align to the base line grid (which is doesn't if you look closely in the second screenshot). In this case though, I expect the text to be precisely vertically centered.

Please don't confuse the global "Use base line grid" option with the "Align to base line grid" option from the paragraph menu.

Perfect, thank you MEB, that resolved my issue :), I don't know why I missed that setting. :221_see_no_evil:

So the paragraph option activates/deactivates it for each paragraph, while the text frame panel activates/deactivates it for the entire text frame.

Kind regards
