Hi guys,

yeap, did all of the above before i posted. I used the same text that was copied using notepad (removing any formating). lol yes i used the button to justify it in the paragraph pallete (homer simpsons famous quote comes to mind for that one). checked all options for both text frames, both on the paragraph fly-out and the right-click "text frame options". both were identical in every way, other justification options worked but the text just would not "justify with last line aligned left" on the first text frame.

NB: i created the second text frame after a restart of the pc. the new text frame works fine, but the "old" one is still with the same weird problem. argh!!

anyway, I had to create 120 new text frames any copy/paste the existing text and it worked fine. go figure. I was hoping it was a silly setting somewhere that was stopping it but no such luck.

while we're on the subject, i have the preferences > when pasting text.... > text only radio button selected. how do you guys clear any formating (if needed) from text before u paste it into ID?

thanks for your help guys.
