Tell element not to snap to baseline grid


Question

I'm editing a template with a baseline grid. I added an icon with Font Awesome and can't align it vertically with my text because it snaps to the baseline.

How can I tell InDesign not to align this particular element to the baseline grid? Turning off Snap to Document Grid and Snap to Guides didn't work.

Accepted Answer

For inline elements you can merely highlight the icon with the Text tool and adjust the baseline to reposition the element.

I figured out a solution.

I can move the text if I convert it to outline.

  1. Select text
  2. Type menu > Create Outlines or hit Shift+Cmd+O

Is there a better way of doing it?
