Turning off Ligatures in InDesign CS5!

Jul 1, 2010 7:01 AM

Hi, I am trying to find out if there's any way to turn off ligatures document-wide. Right now my team has to click on every character style to turn them off. We have over 80 300+ page book documents, so doing this is a pain! The ligatures are a problem when we export to Flashpaper...pdfs work fine. Please help!

    What if you make a new paragraph style similar to the previous ligatures off and apply to the all Document

    Post ID questions to the ID forum. This is forum about design, not InDesign.

    In advanced mode you will see paragaph styles. If not go to Windows>styles>Paragraph style.....

    or press F11 to call out Paragraph style window

    Go to edit your basic paragraph style or any other paragraph style you have.

    Under paragraph style options window> Basic Character formats> uncheck Ligatures.


    good luck.
