Hi

My printer is complaining that my justified text makes it look like there is no space after a full stop. In some cases, it does appear this way.

Is there any way to set a minimum or uniform amount of space after each full stop, within justified text? I have searching this forum + google but did not find an answer.

Many thanks..

arrow!head,

It could be something wrong/inappropriate in your font, or in the application.

Which font and application by the way? The options depend on those.

If not otherwise solved, you could cheat and add an extra space (or more if needed); in this forum, some have mentioned their always doing that as an added effect.

But you should be able to see what the printer sees. If that different?

Thanks for the reply Jacob,

The font is Myriad Pro, and the the app is InDesign cs3.

Actually before reading your reply I decided to you what you suggested, I went through and just added a space where there appeared to be none. This took a few minutes but the result looks fine.

I hadn't considered that it might be a problem with the font - I was surprised that InDesign wouldn't have a control in place to make sure there was proper spacing after a full stop, in justified text, but it makes sense that it could be an anomaly with the Myriad Pro font.

Cheers
