Content Rules: Copy-fitting Options

Created on 28th November 2016 at 18:02 by Jamie O'Connell



The 'Text > Fitting' portion of a Content Rule defines which of these common fitting options are available to a user.

These common 'Fitting' options are changed via a slider rather than editing the value directly. This means that the limits of the slider can be set to conform to brand guidelines, ensuring that your users stay within those guidelines. This is done with the aim of reducing the review/approval cycle time and effort in your workflow.

NOTE:
The raw values of these style overrides are also available directly via the character palette (via 'Text > Styling'). However, no limiting controls may be placed on the raw values.

'Allow All'

'Allow All'

The options available under 'Text > Fitting' are:

  • Size: Adjust the character size.
  • Leading: Adjust the space between lines of text.
  • Tracking: Tracking adjusts the character spacing in the selected text. You can change it to enhance readability, or to fit more text in a column.
  • Horizontal scale: Adjust the width of individual characters.
  • Vertical scale: Adjust the height of individual characters.
  • Baseline shift: Raise or lower a character relative to the baseline.

By default, the 'Allow All' option is selected for each 'Fitting' option. This will permit editors/reviewers to use the full length of the slider. If you wish to limit the override value that an editor/reviewer may apply to some content (i.e. to within branding guidelines), you must first uncheck this box before setting the limits on the slider below it.

'Size'

'Size'

This permits the user to adjust the size of selected characters using a slider.

When 'Allow All' is switched off, the slider limits are automatically set to between 90 and 110 percent.

The extreme limits are 50 and 200 percent.

NOTE:
The size limits must be done as a percentage. This is because a user may use the same slider for adjusting a headline (large text) or a caption (small text). For this reason, the slider uses percentage change in order for the change to be relative to the original size of the text.

> Leading

> Leading

This permits the user to adjust the leading of selected text using a slider.

When 'Allow All' is switched off, the slider limits are automatically set to between 90 and 110 percent.

The extreme limits are 50 and 200 percent.

NOTE:
The leading limits must be done as a percentage. This is because a relative change to the original leading of the text is required.

'Tracking'

'Tracking'

This permits the user to adjust the tracking of selected text using a slider.

When 'Allow All' is switched off, the slider limits are automatically set to between -20 and +20 units.

The extreme limits are -100 and +100 units.

> Horizontal Scale

> Horizontal Scale

This permits the user to adjust the horizontal scale of selected text using a slider.

When 'Allow All' is switched off, the slider limits are automatically set to between 90 and 110 percent.

The extreme limits are 50 and 200 percent.

NOTE:
The horizontal scale limits must be done as a percentage. This is because a relative change to the original horizontal scale of the text is required.

'Vertical Scale'

'Vertical Scale'

This permits the user to adjust the vertical scale of selected text using a slider.

When 'Allow All' is switched off, the slider limits are automatically set to between 90 and 110 percent.

The extreme limits are 50 and 200 percent.

NOTE:
The vertical scale limits must be done as a percentage. This is because a relative change to the original vertical scale of the text is required.

'Baseline Shift'

'Baseline Shift'

This permits the user to adjust the baseline shift of selected text using a slider.

When 'Allow All' is switched off, the slider limits are automatically set to between 90 and 110 percent.

The extreme limits are 50 and 200 percent.

NOTE:
The baseline shift limits must be done as a percentage. This is because a relative change to the original baseline shift of the text is required.
