Due to the lack of automatic hyphenation in Director I usually integrate a method for adjusting the tracking of all important texts.
Thus wrong or ugly line divisions on the user's system can be avoided to certain degree.
This worked pretty well in older Versions (Dir 8.5) - but now in Dir 11.5 I meet a problem:
Decreasing / increasing of the tracking is still possible in pricipal but only in integer values!
Now "member("text").charSpacing= 0.0" looks equal to "... 0.9". All values are roundet down to an integer value.
While the value itself is passed correctly to the member (put member("text").charSpacing.string always gives a correct
result), the text is displayed with incorrect spaces.
Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug which ca be traced back to the unicode support?
Does anybody know a workaround?
I have tested it by making a file in D10 and setting the charSpacing for the same line of text copied 5 times. I can confirm that it works in D10 but not D11.5... I am submitting a bug report to the Director Development team about this.
Thank you very much, Joshua!
Let's hope for the upcoming patch then ...
The new version is available now - but obviously nothing has changed in this respect!
Maybe I'm the only Director user around the world who is dealing with the tracking of text e.g. to compensate other deficites.
So it's not important for Adobe to provide this little bug-fix ...
