    Single Line Text Control (H&J) Tip & Question

    BradRE Level 1

      The attached image is tip for anyone that is looking to constrain InDesign to use the width of a text field (maintaining a single line, good for a variable data field), while allowing characters to smash if they exceed the amount that would normally cause a text frame overflow. Texts in Red; are the settings that are necessary for this functionality. There is a limittation that is outlined in the graphic; that "Glyph Scaling" with no more than a Min of 50% or a Max of 200% (Paragraph Panel > submenu > Justification) is available, which limits its' full potential.

       

      While looking over this, if you have any thoughts on how to build on these settings to allow even more control, please do reply!

       

      Thanks!
