You know, there is a slight difference between en-dash and the minus sign (dash). The minus dash has a slight space (maybe half or whole thin space) at each side of it. Bodvar 2018-07-06 0:15 GMT+00:00 Böðvar Björgvinsson : > The font has to support UTF8, of course! :-) > > Bodvar > > > > >

Hi Lin, I am not sure if I suggested it on the list, but you could make a variable for the minus sign and make a character format to make it a bit wider. Then you could insert the variable where you want the negative sign and it would automatically be stretched to your liking. Not the most

Update on this. I got an email from Adobe yesterday morning that the status was changed from Open to In Test. We may have a fix RSN. Also, I believe that the latest FrameMaker update has fixed the RGB/CMYK bug. On Wed, Jun 6, 2018 at 10:33 PM, Lin Sims wrote: > Used to be if you put an en
