USING THE TYPE MENU COMMANDS


We've covered most of the commands from the Type menu in our discussion of the Character and Paragraph palettes in the first part of this chapter; Chapter 24, "Understanding the InDesign Interface and Tools," offers an overview of the Type menu. Here is a more detailed look at some of the options that are in the Type menu:

  • Glyphs: The Glyphs command opens the Glyphs palette, which shows all available characters for the chosen font. To insert a character in your text, insert the text cursor where you want the character to appear and then double-click the glyph in the Glyphs palette.

  • Story: The Story palette has only one option: turning on Optical Margin Alignment. This option creates hanging punctuation in your document; that is, if a line starts with a quote mark or any other character that is not a letter, the line is moved out so the letters align more closely on a vertical line (see Figure 27.8).

  • Insert Special Character, Insert White Space, Insert Break Character: These selections open submenus of various non-keyboard characters, enabling you to insert them in your document quickly.
