The Riddle of the Hidden Characters: Contest Answer and Winner!

It’s time to reveal the solution—and the winner—for this month’s InDesignSecrets contest!

This time, you had to decipher the meaning of this image (with a little help from the InDesignSecrets Guide to Special Characters.)


As many of you wrote, the image shows an em space = an en space + a quarter space + a thin space + a thin space.

Or, 1 = 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/8

And the winner is…

Marina Thompson

Marina wins a copy of WordsFlowPro from Em Software!


Thanks to everyone who entered, and be on the lookout for another contest with a new great prize next month!
