I don't understand why the leading changes between the different lines in this Text Frame (attached image).

Between the first and the second line, the text "ran outside" the bounds of the Frame, and created two lines automatically.

Between the second and third line, I hit the return key, creating the third line manually.

If I highlight all of the text, the leading is the same (12.4pt in this case).

Why is the space between the second and third line different than the space between the first and second line?

Thank you!

I just had this explained to me...

I was not aware of the difference between Hard Returns and Soft Returns. (a hard return indicates the end of a paragraph, and a soft return is a line break).

Hitting Shift + Return does a soft return, and results in the leading consistency that I naively expected (attached image).

Thanks again, Affinity!

Frame Text has a non-zero ‘space after’ value as part of the default paragraph formatting, but (like all defaults) you can change that value if you want to.
