I do not succeed to make the negative indent on "First Line Left Indent", although I have already adjusted the indentation on the "Left Indent", on paragraph, with 8 mm. Can you help me? what am I doing wrong?

Hi Heloisa,

it's the document's configuration. It's not your current InDesign version.

Initially your document was created August 3rd, 2020 with the Middle East version of InDesign CS6 Version: 8.0.0.370.

And later worked on with InDesign 2020.

 

Copy the contents over to a new document with the same page size and run the script code I posted and you are good to go.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

Interesting - does this happen on all documents / text blocks ?
Can you reset the numbers back to Zero (0) and then save and close the document as an IDML file and then relaunch InDesign and open the file and try it again...

Hi Heloisa,

could you put a sample document on Dropbox or a similar service and share the download link?

I'd like to see into this issue…

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

This may be a long shot, but can you check in Object > Text Frame Options to see if there is an inset on the frame?

Hi Jane-e,

I checked the Text Frame Options, as per your suggestion, I didn't see anything that might be causing the problem.
I attached the screenshots, can you see?

May be I have understood: I checked your file and got the same problem as you. I tried to copy the text in a new file, same problem… So, I copied the text in a TextEdit file and when I did this, I saw that the unformatted text get right aligned, with bullets at the end of the line. I copied this text back in InDesign and it works!

Did you ever work with a Middle East version?Capture d’écran 2020-08-06 à 15.25.19.jpg

Wow! I am Brazilian and I have never worked with anything in the Middle East. I have no idea how it was configured like this. Where do I change this? Can you help me?

Hi,

Was this Middle Eastern configuration problem when I installed InDesign or is it the document's configuration?

Where and how do I change this setting?

Can you guide me?
