I could not resolve the justification issue while using single line composer and the word should not be break at the end of the paragraph. I have not used any word space between the word "my" in my document. Here I do not want to split the content. could you please check and let me know this is bug? or can resolve? how? (tracking not allowed, should not remove Discretionary Line Break, Shift break not allowed)
I have attached the screenshot and IDML file here for troubleshoot.
Still i am not get any solution for this issue? can help anyone?
It is not working; could you please share the issue fixed file?
I thought you are working with missing font. could you please use "ITC Berkeley Oldstyle Std" font and check.
I don’t have that version of Berkeley, but it does seem to be font related. You might have to change fonts or switch to Paragraph Composer:
Minion with Paragraph Composer
I should not change the customer specification. Any other solution?
If you have to stay with Berkeley looks like switching to Paragraph Composer is the only solution—in general Paragraph Composer does a better job with line breaks. Not sure if it’s an InDesign or font bug.
Also, looks like you are not using the latest version of InDesign, which no longer allows Type 1 postscript fonts—the problem in CC2021 seems to be limited to a few Type 1 fonts. You could use a converter to convert your version of Berkeley to Open Type. See this thread:
Here I’ve converted my version of Berkeley to OTF and it fixes the problem:
You should have reported that jmlevy's suggestion doesn't work.
As to error details, InDesign never gives you those unless it's caused by a script. And when InDesign crashes you could check the crash logs. But for general non-fatal malfunctions you'll be in the dark. @rob day suggested that it's a font problem (and so did @jmlevy, though indirectly), which I think is correct, and that's probably as close to 'error details' as you'll get.
To make further tests more precise, please post you ITC Berkeley Oldstyle Std font. Even if some tester has that font, it may not have the same (internal) version number.
Hi Peter, I can replicate the problem using a few older Type 1 fonts in CC2021 (old version of Minion, Adobe’s Berkeley 1989, Eureka, Emigre’s Filosophia), so I thought it was a Type 1 used with Adobe Single Line Composer problem. However, looks like it can also happen with an OTF font—try setting @SathishSekar_ ’s text in Mrs. Eaves XL Serif Narrow, which is available at Adobe Fonts:
Customer requirement to use Adobe Single-line Composer
@rob day The problem shows even with Minion Pro in 2023. And I remember now that I've seen this before a while ago. When you remove the discretionary line-break characters from six-year-old the text flows correctly. Those characters don't make sense there, it seems to me. InDesign never breaks words before a hyphen. The problem that the OP sees shouldn't occur, of course, but in this case it's easy to avoid.
Thanks peter, I did not notice the discretionary line-breaks. Removing them works, but the Single line setting is as expected horrible:
Specification says; it should be single-line composer, last word should not be break, should not be put manual hyphen, should not be adjust tracking and should not be delete discretionary line-breaks.
Fine. But adding discretionary line breaks just cause problems, like irrational line breaks. You should use either non-breaking hyphens or apply NoBreak to the whole phrase.
The specifications are producing a bad result, are the specifications more important than good typesetting? Even if it is an InDesign and not a font bug, it’s not going to get fixed anytime soon, and there are plenty of ways to improve the setting. The single line composer just isn’t very good because it doesn’t consider the entire paragraph.
> are the specifications more important than good typesetting?
Many people see only violations of their (usually pretty petty) rules, such as 'the last line of a paragraph must be at least n characters long'. Or 'a word must not break across pages'. Or 'widows are evil'. Violate the text by tightening and/or loosening paragraphs at will. As long as those rules are honoured it doesn't matter how awfully spaced a text turns out.
I'm reading a novel at the moment where the designer/publisher dictated that the last line of a paragraph must be at least two words long. In a text with lots of short paragraphs (two or three lines) that often causes some really awful type. If the book wasn't so good I'd give up. And this is a book that got the Booker prize, and the translation (from Hindi) got the booker prize, too. The typesetting definitely won't get any prizes.
Have you discussed this problem (and it's solution) with the customer? Perhaps educating them a little bit would be useful.
I will communicate with customer
Thank you all...
