That’s a clever use of Flush Space… I never thought of that before. But I get the same result as you! I tried a number of different fonts. Yes, this may be a bug. Certainly unexpected.
Here’s a different technique you could try: Use a Rule Below that spans the entire column, and a Rule Above that is Paper (to knock out the rule below) the spans just the text… You’ll need to adjust the vertical and horizontal offsets of the Rule Above to get it looking just right.
Hi David, thanks for trying this for me. It’s nice to know that I wasn’t missing something simple.
I tried using the rule below and rule above trick to start with, but as the text and the rules sometimes appear over a picture it didn’t work, as the rule above, that knocks out the rule below, also knocks out the picture.
Anyway, the solution (workaround) to my problem is:
[Flush space][minus a few hundred units of kerning][en space}Some text[en space][Flush space]
with an Underscore applied to the two Flush Spaces.
