    Hanging Punctuation (right aligned)


      Hi all,


      I'm having a problem with this I hope someone has a fix for! I'm running CS6 on 10.6.8 (but have seen this on a machine running 10.8 as well).


      We have a new brand which requires some headings to be right aligned on the text. I'm not able to get it to work - I know about optical alignment. I've tried different fonts and get the same problem: where two lines end with the same letter but one has punctuation the letters do not right align.


      I've attached an image which shows guides to help illustrate this. It's only out by a wee bit but where lines end with the same word it's obvious. The optical alignment is set to the same size as the text and tinkering with it has made to difference.


      We produce 100s of documents a week and the idea of having to manually kern every heading fills me with horror!


      Can anyone help?
