Updated CJK Text Composer Plug-in -- Japanese version only

The updated CJK Text Composer Plug-in corrects two problems with text composition in the Japanese version of Adobe InDesign:

-- Mojikumi space no longer compresses to 0% after a half-width space character when you open a saved document.
-- Kinsoku shori characters no longer overlap Roman text when you take a file created on a computer with outline fonts and open it on a different computer that has only bitmap fonts installed.

We encourage everyone using the Japanese version of InDesign to download and install this update.

Need help with downloading? See our Downloading Help documents.

Important: This updated plug-in should be installed only with the Japanese version of InDesign. If you're using a Roman-language version of InDesign, do not download and install this plug-in.

1. Quit InDesign if it is running.
2. Decompress the cjktext.hqx archive you've downloaded.
3. Move the older CJK Text Composer Plug-in from the Adobe InDesign 1.0J:Required folder to a backup location. (We recommend this precautionary step in case you need to restore the previous plug-in.)
4. Move the updated CJK Text Composer Plug-in into the Adobe InDesign 1.0J: Required folder.
5. Launch InDesign.

To correct an existing document, you must open it in InDesign with the updated plug-in installed and then press Command+Option+/ (forward slash) to perform a force-recompose of all of the stories in that document.
