Chapter 44. Character Formatting > Other Character Formatting

Other Character Formatting

As long as the list of character formats which we’ve already covered is, there are still a few more to add. Several of these are familiar to XPress users: applying horizontal and vertical scaling, color and shade, and baseline shift. Two are new: InDesign lets you skew type, and apply a language attribute. All of these attributes can be included in character and paragraph styles.

Horizontal and Vertical Scaling

Horizontal or vertical scaling artificially compresses or expands characters, distorting their shapes. In QuarkXPress, when you want to apply horizontal or vertical scaling, you choose the command from the Style menu or the Character Attributes dialog box. There you may set either a horizontal or vertical scaling value, but not both.
