Leading on Designer 1 text box doesn't work in Designer 2


Recommended Posts

When using a document that was created in Designer 1 I cannot change the leading of text. This behavior continues if I paste the text box into a document created in Designer 2. The example document contains two text boxes. One was pasted from Designer 1, and the other was created in Designer 2 and the text was pasted in. You'll notice if you change the leading of both, the second text box is the only one that changes.

In the first paragraph (from Designer 1), you have a Leading Override specified in the Character settings. As it is an Override, it prevents changes to the Leading of the Paragraph settings from taking effect.

To see it in V2, use the Text studio, expand the B/U/I/S (character) line, click Positioning, and you'll see an active Leading Override. Deactivate it.

Wow, this is great. Thanks for letting me know. So glad it's not a bug!
