Spacing Between Text Lines

Recommended Posts

This is probably a stupid question but I can't seem to figure out how to control the spacing in between pressing enter to start a new line. I'll attach two pictures of what I've done with changing the Leading Override from 2pt to 3pt. You'll see that there is a massive difference between 2 and 3 pt. Is there any way that you can control the spaces between lines more than this?

You shouldn't press Enter to start a new line. Enter is for new paragraphs. If you need to end a line early, use shift+enter which adds a line break.

Hi Walt! Thanks so much for your reply. I've been using shift+enter, however there is still a bit too large of a gap (or too close of one sometimes). Is there some sort of "leading" feature that offers more precision?

There's a leading setting in the Paragraph panel:

There's also a leading override in the Character panel:
