|Summary||0014757: Inline Items: Add an option to save the vertical offset in a text frame|
|Description||Adjusting the vertical offset of Inline Items can be a chore, because they are by default bound to use the baseline, like a letter. Most of the time, however, the vertical placement needs to be adjusted to negative vertical values, depending on the surrounding font and its size. |
It would be great if we could allow for Inline Items to store the vertical (and potentially horizontal) offset.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
good idea. but i would use the same names as in the fonts.
as an example, an inline item could have a baseline.
the question is: how to define such a behavior "before" the item is placed as a inline item (and, as an example, placed in the scrapbook for further use...)
one possible implementation could use styles.
on the other side, i'd like this to be set in a visual way.
hard to do with styles.
not easy to implement it in a good way,, but it could have used the feature in the past...
||What do you think about making "vertically centred between the ascender height and descender height" the default and permit users to change the value in a separate dialogue? This one could be called "Inline Objects Placement" or something similar. It would only be available in the Edit mode for Inline Items.|
default should be the bottom of the item, as it probably is now.
and i would call it the baseline.
and i'd like to be able to set it by dragging it like a guide (we could allow to pick a guide to define it as the baseline... defining in the PP would add a "special" guide (the guide would not be special, but the items editor would track it as the baseline)
