    Default Equal spacing

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    After a made up a chart I decided that I wanted the text larger. When I did this they began to overlap, how can I make increase the spacing (height) easily?

    Thanks

    You could try changing the width factor of the text style.
    If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist,
    it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform
    to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.

    I think you are talking about the spacing between the lines. If so try this...

    Step 1: Covered the text to mtext by using the txt2mtxt command. Must have express tools loaded

    Step 2: Use properties to adjust line spacing.

    Step 3: Use Explode to return the mtext object back to Text.

    Simply scale the text - this will scale the spaces as well :-)

    Scale is definitely easier than the mtext method. Try this first if you havenít already increase the text size.

    I was assuming that Slinger had already increased then height

    If you want tall text but are having trouble with the widths being too large, try using the Arial Narrow font.

    Also try using lower case letters instead of ALL CAPITALS as lower case is not only easier to read but it takes less width.
