I'm not sure why my text box has padding on the left side but not the right side. When I look at the text frame options, there's no inset spacing on the left side. I want the padding to be symmetrical. I can make it look symmetrical by adding some padding on the right, but I want to know why this is happening so I can make sure the amount of padding pixels is equal.
