Line height spacing problem in 0.92.2

Postby Advait » Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:37 pm

I think this is a well known bug in 0.92.2. Anyone know when the line height spacing issue will be fixed? I'm unable to adjust line height spacing.

Anyway to fix this bug?

If I understand correctly, many people have reported this bug. Thanks,

I'm using Inkscape on a Win 10 laptop.

Not a bug.

Might be a change to the ui, to make the tools easier to understand.

You can click the TT button to adjust the "outer text element" min spacing, and then adjust the inner elements.
Have a nice day.

It was my understanding it is a bug. (or was a bug, and might still be in some cases) Not that I'm a bug expert or anything.

I didn't read this entire report, but it looks like this should explain everything: https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1655483

The report is concerning legacy text line spacing.

This actually is more helpful than a tangentally related bug report :

Yeah, the UI has been changed again for 0.93, and now features four main settings, one of which is 'adjustable', which corresponds to the current state, and the others are reasonable presets - but it doesn't work properly (e.g. changing the font-size changes line-height instead, but font is still same size as before..., cursor is in wrong place before typing, you cannot set it before you start a text - it always jumps back, etc. etc.. So, the improvement that was intended, and that is there now, is eaten up by the bugs.)
Something doesn't work? - Keeping an eye on the status bar can save you a lot of time!
