Line spacing

Line spacing is the space between each line in a paragraph. The default spacing for all text is 1.15. "MyOffice Text" allows you to change the line spacing for all text, as well as for individual paragraphs. You can use predefined line spacing options or set your own.

If you select a predefined value, the line spacing is equal to the product between the font size and the specified value. For example, if you use 12 pt font and double line spacing for the paragraph, the line spacing in the paragraph is 24 pt (12 pt x 2).

To set a predefined line spacing:

1.Select the text fragment you want to format.

2.On the Toolbar, select the Paragraph section and click the button which displays the current line spacing value. For example: lines_space.

3.In the list that expands, select a required value.

To set a custom line spacing:

1.Select the text fragment you want to format.

2.On the Toolbar, select the Paragraph section and click the button which displays the current line spacing value. For example: lines_space.

3.In the list that expands, click Custom Line Spacing.

4.In the window that appears, set the method for calculating the interval manually, using one of the following parameters:

Multiply: Sets the line spacing, which increases or reduces according to the specified multiplier. The multiplier 1.00 corresponds to a single line spacing. Select the multiplier greater than 1.00 to increase the spacing. For example, setting a multiplier to 1.2 will increase the space by 20%. Select the multiplier of less than 1.00 to reduces the spacing. For example, setting a multiplier to 0.7 will reduce the space by 30%.

Exact: Sets a fixed spacing equal to the value specified in the field to the right. The value is expressed in points (pt). Unlike the predefined spacing, the fixed spacing is not changed when the font is reduced/increased.

At Least: Sets the minimum allowed spacing, equal to the value specified in the field to the right. The value is measured in points (pt). If the lines contain characters of different height (for example, superscript and subscript characters) or different font sizes, the value of the spacing between the lines is calculated automatically to fit the larger text.

4.In the field to the right, set the numeric value for the selected parameter .

5.Click ОК.

Character spacing

The character spacing allows you to set the space between the characters being entered into the text. You can choose between the following options: condensed, normal, and expanded character spacing.
