Line spacing in text boxes
« on: November 19, 2012, 08:37:23 pm »
Hi. Total newbie to Scribus here. I did a search and couldn't find anything so I'm posting this question.

When I create a new document, add a text box, type in text, then change the font and point size in the edit>edit text box, the line spacing doesn't change, and I cannot work out how to do it. It has options for manual tracking, but not for the space between lines. If I change it in file>document setup>typography it doesn't apply.

Any thoughts?

Thanks so much.

Use the properties palette (F2) or use styles.

The Story Editor (Edit text) is currently not recommended because it needs a major rewrite.
