    World-ready paragraph composer bug


      The world-ready paragraph composer for Adobe InDesign CS5 & 6 unpredictably creates a ragged right margin on justified text when the text has been shrunk by reducing the tracking of the paragraph. The ragged right disappears when the text tracking is set back to zero OR the composer is changed.

          Really? Can you post some more detail?  I mean, this forum is not the right place to report bugs - you are looking for this form if you want to report a bug - but I thought that I had a corner on reporting-WRC-bugs market. I can't recreate your bug in CS5 or CS5.5 or CS6. I know that you said "unpredictably" but what conditions can cause this bug to appear? FWIW, here's what I did in three different versions of ID:


          Start a brand-new print-intent document

          Insert one text frame

          Fill with placeholder text, either lorem ipsum or Arabic filler, doesn't matter

          Turn on the WRC (by script in CS5 and CS5.5)

          Click either one of the justify-text buttons

          Change tracking in increments of 20 with keyboard


          and get... exactly what you'd expect. Haven't seen a rag right yet. What am I doing differently?
