I have applied minion pro regular font to a paragraph and print that file to postscript and converted it to pdf using distiller
My problem is when i copied that paragraph from pdf to a notepad or ms word, there is a extra space occured in between the words like "Th e", "Th is" etc.
If I changed the composer setting to Adobe World Ready Paragraph Composer, the problem got solved.
The problem occurs only for Minion Pro Font. Any suggestions/inputs please?
Hello Vandy! As I am also an Indesign user, I would like to ask why you would save to Postscript and then distill instead of exporting PDF, what "composer settings" are and why you would copy text from a PDF to Word or Notepad instead of exporting the Indesign file to HTML.
Hi Doc Maik,
Its not for my project work, I'm just creating a database which show the entire font type (which will help the composer to find whether it is serif or sanserif etc). While creating that I found that problem.
I know the alternate way for that solution, but y such problem occurs for Minion Pro font not other fonts
Thanks Peter for your reply. I have some doubt in InDesign.
1) What is the difference between Adobe Paragraph Composer and Adobe World Ready Paragraph Composer
2) I am using Adobe Paragraph Composer in paragraph styles, I want to change the composer settings to Adobe World Ready Paragraph Composer for US/UK Languages. If I do, what is the major changes will occur in my project.
Hi, for Western Languages you you can and you should use Adobe Paragraph Composer.
The other one, Adobe World Ready Paragraph Composer is more for non-western type like Middle East or Asia.
There exist also several Non-Adobe Composer for different languages than English, they claim to have better results for that language than the original composer has. But you have to pay extra for them and there is no guarantee that they will support the next version of InDesign too.
Thanks Willi Adelberger for your valuable reply.
Just I need one final question, If I change my composer setting from Adobe Paragraph Composer to Adobe World Ready Paragraph Composer, what major effect will occur on page composition?
Try it. No one here knows your documents and how it will affect them. But I would not recommend to do it. What advantage do you expect from it? I see advantages when I have Hebrew and Arabic type, but with any LTR-Language (English, German, Spanish, Russian, Greek, etc.) I don't see why anyone should use it.
