InDesign 2. Word spacing palette?

david_leonard's picture

Is there a palette that shows what your current word spacing is in InDesign 2. I know the shortcuts for increasing and decreasing the word spacing but just want to know if there is a window that shows the current word spacing.

Hi David,

There is a window as you can see in the pdf.
I only have an Dutch version of InDesign and hope you can find where the palette is.

Thanks Nico,
but Im looking for a palette that shows the space between the words and not the letters.

Thanks again david.

David, is this what you're after? This dialog box is buried under: Type>Paragraph>Justification.InDesign screen capture

David, if you select the text first, I think you'll get exactly what you're after. You can check a line, a paragraph, or a pair of words - assuming you have not made micro-adjustments within any of those wording groups - and you'll get a readout for the spacing.

There isn't anything visual. The only way which I am aware is under the paragraph palette's little triangle.
