Hello! Has anybody ever experienced a locked leading? No matter how I change the leading size, the spacing doesn't change on the text. Please see screenshots of when leading value is different but the spacing remains the same on the actual text.

I noticed that this only happens when I copy over existing text on other afpub files. And that actually opens up other problems as well (e.g. stroke outline becomes thicker or thinner when I copy paste from another afpub file)

This is really bugging me so much as I work with templates and I have to use pre made layouts over and over again.

I hope someone can help.

Also check your Baseline Grid settings for your document. These are in View - Baseline Grid Manager - .

and also for the individual text frame in View - Studio - Text Frame:

If the original text frame was not set to lock to Ignore Baseline Grid, and your document or text frame has a baseline grid (showing or not) then changing the leading may not necessarily change the line spacing. This is 9pt leading with a 48pt Baseline Grid:

OMG  you solved a problem that was driving me looney. Baseline Grid was on and leading adjustments would seem buggy not responsive.  Many thanks. How many others has this perplexed?

Many, many others.

Affinity Designer 2.0.4 | Affinity Photo 2.0.4 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.4 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I am going to post this issue for the developers as a usability problem. This predicament has wasted me and others endless hours sorting this design setting that needs to be more clearly mentioned. I found one line not even highlighted that makes all the difference on the Baseline help page.

"The baseline grid's Grid Spacing option overrides the leading value of frame text."

No mention on the Leading page that this will constrain your layout tweaking severely...and get you thinking it's a bug or you are an idiot. 🤨

Baseline Grid is disabled, and toggle for Align to baseline grid is also off --- it's really a weird bug for leading which is EXTREMELY inconvenient when you encounter it -- my workaround has been to create separate text boxes for each line which is stupid and defeats the purpose of a publishing software. I think it's especially vexing if you work a lot with templates --- which is what we do in our company.

There are Baseline Grid settings for the document, and for each Text Frame in the document. When you say it is disabled, have you checked both locations?

Can you supply a sample document that exhibits the problem?
