Title: 1,5 lines spacing ?
Post by: gio on August 24, 2016, 08:44:39 pm
Hi everyone! ;)

For a school work, I am asked a line spacing of 1.5 lines on Word. But the unit is not on the same Scribus. How do I put? Thank you ! ;D

If your text is 12 pt then 1,5 line spacing would be 18 pt (12 x 1,5).

In typography this would usually be called 12/18.

1.5 means that the line spacing should be one and a half time the font size.

if you have a text size of 12 then the line height will be 12 + (12 / 2) = 18 :-)
