I agree with Eugene and it's an easy fix, @Asadali92:.

Most likely the returns are not hard returns but soft returns - it's hard to know cos you don't have Show Invisibles turned on

I'm of the opinion that ID should give a slightly scary beep when a soft return is entered. 🙂

Seriously, a 'prevent' (or at least highlight/alert) multiple white spaces feature would be useful. Training wheels for newcomers, speed alert for pros.

 

I know at least one tool allowed multiple spaces to be switched off—was it FrameMaker? Used so many I can't remember.

 

But we see an awful lot of problems caused by soft returns. Not that ID should be turned into a running tutorial, but this is a basic structural issue it should... recognize and respond to.

Unfortunately, it's the desired workflow.

Just because it's not my workflow doesn't mean it's wrong.

 

It's just the way it was done before.

 

The remedy of any task to do it the way you need it - whatever way you need to it.

 

I've had people take on my InDesign file and they had no idea how I was able to do it. But, they can do it their own way, it might be less or more sophisticated but - it works.

 

So if it's not broken don't fix it.

If it is broken, then fix it 🙂
