Hi,

I would like to format a piece of text so that it has a header non justified and then on the line immediately below it (no line break) to have fully justified text but each time I try to apply justification to the selected text it gets force onto the preceding lines too. Is there a way I can achieve this?

Thanks.

To separate two pieces of text like that you need to have either a line break or a paragraph break, I think. Otherwise they won't be on separate lines; they'll be on the same line.

Why not simply press Enter so they are separate paragraphs?

If simply pressing Enter was the solution I wouldn't have posted the question, the formatting is important to me as it originates from previous files, I merely want to duplicate what had been set up in Scribus. I'd hoped a Shift/Enter would work but that too remains in the same paragraph, my only thoughts now are to indeed press enter and try to reduce the blank line height to a point where it is no-longer visible as a separate line, is this possible?

No doubt a suggestion that is useless, since I have no idea the length of text that you are talking about, but if it is a case of one header and then a body of text, why not just make two text frames?  And position according to taste?  As said I bet you have a good reason why not to do this, but I had to suggest it.:)

Microsoft - Like entering your home and opening the stainless steel kitchen door, with a Popup: 'Do you really want to open this door'? Then looking for the dishwasher and finding it stored in the living room where you have to download a water supply from the app store, then you have to buy microsoft compliant soap, remove the carpet only to be told that it is glued to the floor.. Don't forget to make multiple copies of your front door key and post them to all who demand access to all the doors inside your home including the windows and outside shed.

Apple - Like entering your home and opening the oak framed Kitchen door and finding the dishwasher right in front you ready to be switched on, soap supplied, and water that comes through a water softener.  Ah the front door key is yours and it only needs to open the front door.

Set Space before and Space after to 0 (zero) in your paragraph style for both paragraphs, this is in the Spacing section

. Have the leading set to the size of the Baseline as well, not default.

Thank you Old Bruce, that has done the trick, it would be good if I could save this somehow to easily apply for each of my header paragraphs. I'm struggling somewhat to get my head around how Character, Paragraph and Text Styles all work together or as it seems in my case at the moment against each other!

You would save it by updating the appropriate paragraph text style, and applying that style to your header paragraphs.

If you want your changes to apply to additional documents that you create, you can also update the defaults to include your changes, using the hamburger menu on the Text Styles studio panel.
