Affinity Publisher: Text Style - Line spacing

Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

Hi Foolix

To illustrate what Wosven replied to you,  first open a text box and use the paragraph panel  2014837449_paragraphpanel.PNG.818887f83b4ef6ff084bb21430189288.PNG 

to set the line spacing to your desired height.  Here I've reduced spacing from default of 12 [points] down to  6.



Next, highlight some text and then open the Text STYLES panel 606163325_selecttextandopenstylepanel.PNG.11a85254c2657b8d3a7224d9e58a9219.PNG



Finally click on the   Update Paragraph Style button1056326926_updatestyle.PNG.b11c1bda13d396cb68d4d2d2aa017c39.PNG


Now all instances of Body text in this publication will be to these settings.

For more permanent settings [assuming you have done this in a new publication, delete the text box(es)  that you used to try out your settings so that you now have a blank publication and export this as a TEMPLATE  [Note it is Export as Template  not Save As.

#f you open any new publication using this template, then Body text will be to your required setting.  You can, of course, change any of the standard paragraph styles in this way and even create new styles. Then after altering/updating styles, as long as you Export as Template, you will have the changes permanently to hand.  Also note that when you save a publication your text styles are saved within the publication so that when somebody else opens your publication it will be laid out as you set it [though the included styles are NOT saved in their Affinity programme.

Find more information in the Help files.
