Paragraph styles

Previous topic - Next topic


Found some inconsistency when creating a chapter heading style. In the Alignment and Distances section the "space above" settings doesn't seem to work (no result in the document) while the "space below" works as expected.
I would like the heading start at a distance from the top and give a distance down to the body text.


looks like that isn't a variable for a style
F3 Content Properties has a setting for that under Columns & Text Distances

it does seem like the styles could use some development, imho there should be a frame tag/style, but I'm happy to use Scribus the way the developers make it


Using text properties it's not a very sleek option for a book with many chapters. If indeed this is a bug my post could maybe function as a reminder.BDHDCM


Isn't this just the issue that space before paragraph does not apply for the first paragraph in the frame? (I am not sure if that is how it works, but it sounds like it could be.)


The trick to get it working: Open in story editor and add one empty line before the title.
