Double Spacing in Callouts

Unread post by Gerold Krommer »


everytime I work with Xplain I struggle with the double text spacing appearing all over the places. I understand I have to set the text size explicitly in the design.
I did this and the spacing is correct in text boxes, but not in callouts. Also I do not understand why this must be done in such a central place what if I want 14pt of text one place and 12pt in another, do I have to live with the excessive spacing?

Interesting that in the slide animation preview the spacing is correct, but isn't in the whole preview and in the actual produced xplain.
I don't do helpXplain a lot but feelingwise I spend 50% of the time trying to fix line spacing problems....

Thanks for any insight,

Hi Gerold,

The key here is setting explicit values for the text parameters in Design > Customize Theme, instead of leaving them set to (Auto). Once you do that, you will find they become controllable.
