Digital & Print Templates for InDesign: Why am I seeing a warning on my text frames
Updated over a week ago

Expected behavior

When Frontify detects that your text will not fully fit into the provided text frame, it will show a warning:

If this happens, make sure to adjust the length of your text, so it will fit into the allocated space.


If you feel that the warning is shown incorrectly (i.e. if the text visually appears to fit into the text frame or if you have just uploaded the file into your Template Library and the original content fit in InDesign), there are a couple of steps you can take to troubleshoot this issue:

  1. Make sure you don't have any additional line breaks added to the end of your text

  2. Make sure you have selected a line height (leading) that will fit into the text frame as well, as this is factored into the calculations

    1. You can fix this by changing the line height (leading) in InDesign and replacing the template

    2. You can also adjust the size of the text frame in InDesign and replace the template

Specifically for InDesign

If you're using InDesign to create your templates, also check the following:

  1. Make sure you have followed all of the steps in this help article

  2. Make sure InDesign's auto-tracking feature has not kicked in

    1. This feature automatically kicks in, when you're creating text frames that fit the content really tightly. InDesign will reduce the spacing in your text ever so slightly, to make sure it still fits (even if the text frame is marginally too small). Frontify cannot reproduce this behavior in the browser and will therefore show a warning.
