Hello I am working on simple text page but when I revise words with an f a t w/ dot under when I type?
SO the words graffitti and influencer...
I have used new pages, new text boxes etc.
Any ideas much appreciated!
Can you post a screenshot? What font do you use?
Yes, I uploaded a screen shot ... see influencers is intuencers, the t wiht a dot below.
The font is Baskerville Old Face.
Do you have applied paragrahps style to your text with assigned English language?
THX ! Oddly I relaized the font was Times but should have been Baskerville Old Face, which simply made the issue vanish!
Great that you discovered the solution was a font error.
Note that the "fl" portion of influencers was looking for an fl ligature (a ligature is two letters combined into one glyph to represent both letters).
Your version of Times didn't contain the fl ligature and instead substituted the t+dot glyph. I'm suspecting that it's not a Unicode version of Times New Roman.
Ligatures happen behind the scenes: InDesign can automatically use them in your text if:
FYI, I'm surprised to see that your version of Times didn't have the fl ligature and instead did the swap. Modern versions of Times, especially opentype versions, usually have the ligature. Some fonts have more ligatures than others, and other fonts don't have any at all.
Generally, it's best to keep your font technologies up to date. We recommend:
Glad the mystery was solved!
