Is there a way to adjust line spacing in the text boxes?

Oct 02, 2012

I am trying to space the lines in text boxes, for example the space between bullet points.  Is there a way to do it?

Hi April -- you can't adjust the line height or spacing between bullets and text right now.

If you are not dealing with a large amount of text, you could place each line of text in a separate text box - it is a pain but it would give you the flexibility to organize the spacing more to your liking.

As for bullets, I often create my own using shapes or an image which allows me to align them any way I want.  Again, it is a bit of a pain but makes for a nicer presentation in the end.

Thanks, Kate for posting which motivated me to also put in a request. I keep looking for the paragraph drop-down I'm so used to in PPT that allows incremental spacing, and then remembering it's not there. I've worked around in the way Nancy has suggested and she's right, it is a bit of a pain! Submitting a request now.

No, Nancy. Sorry if you thought I was doing it per your suggestion. I'd been doing it for quite some time, having coming up with this "solution" in the same way that you apparently did: working around it. When I saw Kate's post, it motivated me to take 5" and submit a feature request. So, the pain doesn't stem from you. Hope you feel better
