Hi all,

I am currently designing an infogrpahic in InDesign and everytime I put a percent symbol in a text box the formatting screws up for example instead "Even though 19% reported x" it instead says "reported x %19 Even though." I am completely baffled by this and I have searched the internet for solutions but they simply do not work. Any help would be appreciated!

Look this up in the help pages:

https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/paragraph-character-styles.html

 

Read it from top to bottom and then consult section "Clear paragraph style overrides".

Hi @Agastya-Asthana ,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. We'll need to reproduce the issue on our end so could you please share the version of InDesign and the Operating System along with a small video of the workflow? We'll try our best to assist you.

Sure thing Rishab. I am using Adobe InDesign 2022 v17.3.

Here's a link to the video demonstrating the phenomena: https://www.loom.com/share/0dff9434e1a841bfa50f2f9d19ede026

Check the language applied to the numbers.

If it is incorrect, it's probably coming from a style either misapplied or incorrectly defined.

I guess, that you are using the wrong paragraph composer for your text.

Instead of the Adobe World-Ready Composer, use the Adobe Paragraph Composer.

Also the wrong font which is Adobe Arabic. It should be Minion Pro with your applied [Basic Paragraph] paragraph style.

 

So your applied paragraph style shows style overrides; notice that little + at the end of the style's name.

Get rid of the style overrides. There is a menu command for this in the Paragraph Styles panel. Currently you are using features, that are necessary for Arabic or Hebrew text.

 

FWIW: All panels can be accessed through main menu Window.

See Styles > Paragraph Styles or switch your workspace to the Typography one.
