Running head containing forced line break inserts space incorrectly

FWIW: Don't think that the behavior with text variables was different in previous versions of InDesign.

That's standard behavior for Text Variables. What specifically are you trying to accomplish? They may be a way to work around that limitation, depending on what you're trying to do.

Hi rasmussvanejensen,

the workaround would be to have no line breaks.

If you need a line break do it without a line break special character.

 

Two examples below:

[1] A very wide white space applied by a character style.

[2] Use text wrap.

Hi Uwe.

Thanks for the work around – Looks like I will have to use a MacGyver solution for now.
