Hi. I have a problem with Optical Margin Alignment. It works only on some paragraphs in the document with a book. I thought maybe the document was broken, because I worked on some old idd one (from 2 years ago) and on the latest InDesign version. I've created a new one from scratch, but the problem is still there. Maybe there is a problem with Word doc? Has anyone have such situation?
Which glyphs are you expecting to hang out from the margin with Optical Margin Alignment. Here's a description from InDesign Help of the the way it works:
It works for me. It should work for all paragraphs less you have turned on Ignore Optical Margin in a paragraph's preferences (manually or with a style).
Hi @Karolina274448842p4l , Also, in case it isn’t clear, Optical Margin Alignment is applied to the text’s parent text frame—it’s not a document setting. Make sure you select the text frame, check the Story panel, and ensure that OMA is turned on with the correct size.
And as Steve mentions, there is an option within Paragraph Styles and the Paragraph panel to Ignore OMA, make sure you are not using a Paragraph Style with Ignore Optical Margin checked, or have it checked in the Paragraph panel’s flyout menu:
