Release: Xtags 6/ for InDesign CS4/5/5.5

January 27, 2012 by

This patch release of Xtags for InDesign addresses tab composition compatibility.


  • Addressed a compatibility issue with tabs where InDesign, unlike QuarkXPress, was allowing the paragraph’s alignment, if not left-aligned, to alter the alignment of text to the last tab. On import, Xtags now forces left alignment on paragraphs that contain both tabs and tabstops so that text will align to the last tab as it does in QuarkXPress.
  • Addressed a problem where very small tab offsets (< 0.1 pt) were being ignored by InDesign’s composer. When importing from a QuarkXPress 3.3 source (v1.7), very small tab offsets are now clamped to 0.1 pt so that they won’t be ignored in order to encourage a more QuarkXPress-like composition.
