Widows and orphans, those short lines or words at the end or beginning of a paragraph, are a typesetter’s nightmare. While you can eliminate them with soft returns or tracking, you’ll save time and effort by using Adobe InDesign’s powerful typesetting engine instead. Using styles, you can adjust the word spacing, letter spacing, or even change the number of hyphens. In this episode of InDesign Secrets, Anne-Marie Concepción shows you how to create paragraph styles to reformat your text, and save time during layout for more important design issues. Watch the free video below to get started.
