Balance ragged lines of text with this simple setting (InDesign CS6/CC/CC 2014/CC 2015/CC 2017)

Balance ragged lines of text with this simple setting (InDesign CS6/CC/CC 2014/CC 2015/CC 2017)When laying out text, your paragraphs will look a lot neater if the ends of each line aren’t drastically uneven. The Balance Ragged Lines feature offers a quick way to adjust the amount of words and characters on each line so they wind up being similar lengths. To put Balance Ragged Lines to work, choose Window > Type and Tables > Paragraphs to display the Paragraphs panel. Select the text to which you want to apply this feature, click on the panel options button in the top right corner of the Paragraphs panel, and choose Balance Ragged Lines from the pop-up menu. If you don’t like the results, repeat to turn off the feature.
