Problem: Adjust line spacing for small font sizes - 12 (pt) and below

Postby augustinus » Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:06 pm

Hello everybody,

I just stated that I can not regulate font sizes below 12 (pt) with the line spacing setting - there is a line spacing, although it is set to zero (font size: 6 (pt)). Does any of you know what I did wrong?

Best Regards,

Augustine

You need to make sure you are adjusting the "Outer Style" of the text when you change the font size. To do this (1) click on the icon next to the font size drop down menu, so that the icon is highlighted;

(2) once the icon is highlighted, re-change the font size to your desired font size. This should fix your spacing for your small font.

It's a bug. Answer above.

Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/
