Leading & Incremental Object Moving Issues with Indesign

Hi Everyone,

Using Indesign  2019 on Windows 7  with 32 gigs of RAM and 2.1 GHz processor.

I  made a graphic to explain this issue.   I feel like there is a control blocking the leading from working or Open Type font not being identified in Indesign but do not know what it is.

See the Graphic here - http://www.tridentlab.com/indesign_bug.jpg

****  NOTE :  Please copy the link above and paste it on a browser.  Somehow Adobe has added junk into the URL.

Now that was for Leading.   But I do have the same issue when Incrementally selecting an object and moving it using the

Control - Alt - arrow keys.   It moves more than an increment like maybe 1/2 an inch at a certain place.

Can anyone help me with this?

Greatly appreciate it.

Ed

Do you have text aligned to baseline grid? Turn it off.

Worth noting: Windows 7 is nearing EOL. The next version of InDesign will not run it.

Ahh Success .... I had a feeling it was a control.   Thank you Bob L.  for your help.  

I was not able to turn off the baseline grid as in the preferences / Grid dialogue box .... there was no ... on/off switch.

But I was able to bring down the increments to as low as .1 inch.   That works for me for the moment. 

If you know where that control is in preferences,  please let me know.  

Once again,  your input helped.

That’s a paragraph level attribute. Check the style, it’s likely in there. You can also turn it off by looking in the paragraph panel.

Thank you, Bob! That was the exact issue I was having and couldn't figure it out. Too bad ID doesn't allow you to turn it off in the preferences before creating a new document.
