If you want to change the space between the lines, also known as Leading, you can do that with your keyboard as well. It's very similar to the current track, keyboard shortcut instead of the right and left arrows keys, though you are going to use the up an down arrow keys. So let's begin by getting our Text tool, we'll click inside our text layer here, and do a select all, Command+A, Ctrl+A, and then Option or Alt on Windows, Option on a Mac, up and down arrows. So if I use the down arrow, I can expand the space between each line. Option+Up arrow or Alt+Up arrow will tighten the leading, and if you want to do it in larger increments, hold down the Command key as well or the Ctrl key. So to do that together, Command+Option+Up arrow and Command+Option+Down arrow, or Ctrl+Alt+Up arrow, Ctrl+Alt+Up and Down arrow, just to do this in larger increments.
So I can really tighten that up if I want, let go of the Command key or let go of the Ctrl key and just nudge that a little bit, so it's a little bit more refined. If I'm happy with that, hit the Enter key to apply it. If I want to escape it, just undo it, just hit Escape. I'm going to go and apply that. So there you have it. There is your leading keyboard shortcuts.
