Is your text all one paragraph, or is each line a separate paragraph?

Sadly this is not going to work in the retail version, you can download the Beta or wait a couple or three weeks and get the free update to 1.7.0

What I would use is a Paragraph Style and set the space before to be on Always or Only at Column Top. This feature "Use space before:" is missing from the current version 1.6.x but the new version 1.7.x is due as I said in a couple or three weeks.

All one paragraph. I’m designing a phone APP where a long text is divided by chapters and I need to repeat that operation many times

I think I will wait for the new version while I work on other aspects of my project.  I will also try the second option that you recommend.  More than a punctual solution to a problem, it is about finding the most comfortable and fastest way to do it, when it is a mechanical operation that you have to repeat constantly.  Thank you very much in any way

As a workaround just reposition the text box or nest another one on top with a height adjustment according to that red line placement. On export those text rects aren't visable anyway.

good trick as a workaround. More than moving the paragraph, place another paragraph or better even a rectangle on the paragraph, thanks v_kyr
