85324_154_16x9_thumb

Sometimes InDesign seems like it willfully ignores you. Like when you set an exact leading amount and the program completely disregards that value.

Well it turns out InDesign is instead paying attention to two settings that override whatever you put in the Leading field: Align to Baseline Grid and Vertical Justification.

Learn to identify why InDesign isn’t responding, find where these settings live, and make sure your text frames and their contents are set up to accept manual leading adjustments. Watch today’s free episode of InDesign Secrets and come back next week for more!
