Line Spacing Toolbar Buttons

When the text cursor is in a paragraph with more than a single line of text, the line-spacing buttons become active. The icon shown indicates the current spacing of the paragraph being edited.

Infix Line Spacing Icon

If you press the button you will see 4 icons pop-up:

Infix Line Spacing Toolbar

which in order mean single space, 1.5 space, double space and other indicated by a small 'N' in the icon.

If you choose N (other spacing) then the  Text Spacing palette will appear (if not already open) and you can change the line spacing to any value you wish - see below.

Text Spacing Palette

Use the Spacing dialog box to set line spacing values to any value, not just the 1x, 1.5x and 2x spacing available with the toolbar buttons.

  1. Select the Text tool (Text tool button) from the tool bar.
  2. Choose Text->Spacing... from the main menu bar.

  3. Choose the mode of line-spacing At Least, Exactly & Multiple

Multiple

Use Multiple mode to specify gaps such as “2.5 lines” meaning that the gap will be at least 2.5 times the line height.
Setting multiples of 1, 1.5 or 2 is the same as pressing the single, 1.5 or 2x spacing buttons on the formatting tool-bar.


At Least

This paragraph shows the affect of the

At Least mode in which you tell Infix the minimum gap between lines (measured in points).

To stop the wheels line from colliding with the previous line, Infix has automatically increased its line spacing.

Exactly

This paragraph shows the affect of the

Exactly setting in which you tell Infix the exact gap size between lines (measured in points).

Infix has used exactly the same spacing for each line regardless of whether or not they collide.
