Chapter 10. ADVANCED TEXT > Hanging Punctuation

Hanging Punctuation

One of the most sophisticated effects for text in InDesign is the ability to apply hanging punctuation to justified text. Hanging punctuation is applied by setting the optical margin adjustment. This moves punctuation characters slightly outside the text margin. This creates the illusion of a more uniform edge for the text . In addition, optical margin adjustment also moves portions of serifs outside the margin .
