Publisher description for Proper VJ

Proper VJ program icon

Vertical Justification, (VJ) aligns the top and bottom of text with the top and bottom of its containing text Frame, and distributing the lines of text in between. This is Similar to ???full justification??? in lines of text???which aligns the beginning and ends of lines with the left and right margins. Proper VJ can be used in conjunction with InDesign???s built in VJ. If there is any space to add once Proper VJ finishes, (i.e. if there is no space-before set, or if the space required exceeds the vertical Threshold) that space will be added by the built-in VJ. When InDesign adds space for vertical justification, it simply takes the space it needs to distribute, and divides it by the number of lines. It does not take into account whether it is actually appropriate to add the space. For example: very often a header will have space-before applied. The paragraphs which follow the header very often don???t. When adding space between lines, it is appropriate to add that space to the header and not to the body text. Adding space to the body text???even between paragraphs can disturb the unified look of the layout. A better solution is to add the space only to paragraphs in which the space is appropriate. Such a paragraph will generally have space-before applied. For this reason Proper VJ uses the space-before setting of the paragraph as the basis for adding space.
