Hello

 

What is wrong with my text in this text frame. I do not want the text to break into two lines. I only want the text on one line inside this text frame. I have tried to remove line breaks, and make the text frame wider as shown below, replace the text, but the issue still consists:

And hidden characters are already shown

Hi AppA,

could be an object on the page with text wrap enabled and the wrap zone forces your text to break.

Also check the value for Left Indent in the Paragraph panel and possible inset values in the text frame options.

Hm. And perhaps export that text frame to IDMS and share the IDMS file for inspecting.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

Hello

 

No signs of objects with text wrap nor incorrect text frame values. Any other suggestions?

There is a distance between the ) and the #. What is between?

Use paragraph styles, never use [Basic Paragraph]. It will reduce problems.

The weird thing is your screen shot is that, in the story editor part, it seems that this is a table with an hyperlink and in the layout view, we see a threaded frame.

Yes, there is a table structure and also threaded frames. It works fine in all other places, except this page. I really don't know what setting is causing this problem

I just realized that you got a similar problem in January, so I would like to understand: why do you mix threaded frames and tables?

And to understand your problem, could you share the file?

Uncheck "balance ragged lines" in your paragraph style settings.

Here the info about -

Ok, what about to give us package of this file (one page with that part of text)?

What's the object underneath that text box? (that we can see just poiking out to the right) Does it perhaps have a wrap assigned to it?

It is exactly what I suspected: you have created a table (I really do not understand why) and the text is in a cell which is narrower than the text frame, so it is logical that the text jumps to the second line.Capture d’écran 2021-06-03 à 11.01.38.jpg

 

Look below: I have copied all your text frames on a new page and changed the layer color, to make the hidden invisible characters more visible. There are a lot of empty useless cells. Furthermore, you do not apply any paragraph style on your text (except the Basic paragraph).

Capture d’écran 2021-06-03 à 11.11.03.jpg

My advice would be to either use a table and only a table OR threaded frames and only threaded frames but not both.

The designer of the book actually made all the spreads the same way as far as I know, but this issue does not occur on the other pages and I can just extend the text frame to have my text on one line regardless of the table structure. So how / where can I fix this setting?

 

And maybe the designer made this table structure to have all the images in the "right" place vertically and horisontically.

No, the images are not part of the table, and furthermore, this table has 16 rows and 3 columns, so it does not match with the picture structure. Maybe you will think that I am rude, but this file is a complete mess.

How do I ask you about? Not the single indd. We do need a package of one page with your "bug". 

https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/how-to/indesign-package-files-for-handoff.html

 

Single one file .indd can't give all the things for produce your bug.
