Tip

In vertically justified text with an Inter ¶ Max value of 0, space is added evenly between lines and paragraphs. An Inter ¶ Max value greater than 0 is the maximum space that can be added between paragraphs before leading is affected.


Tip

Make sure there is no return at the end of the last line in a box to which bottom, centered, or justified Vertical Alignment has been applied.


Tip

Vertical justification won't work if another box for which Runaround is turned on overlaps the text box to which justification has been applied. Choose a Runaround of None (Item menu > Runaround) for the topmost box, and vertical justification will work.


Tip

With the Item tool selected, you can double-click a text box to quickly open the Modify dialog box. Ctrl-double-click if you're using the Content tool.
