Summary0001119: Font size and line spacing in the Properties palette are available but have no effect on styled text
DescriptionBoth the font size and the line spacing can only affect a text that has no style. Thus, wouldn’t it be better for the user’s experience to grey those options when a style has been applied to a text?
Additional InformationThere are other issues in the Properties palette. For example, the *Width* overrides the Style (when selecting a new style, the width value remains and is applied to the text). Wouldn’t it better to place the *width* option into the Style editor?

The fill color can be changed on top of style settings but when you change to another style, it’s this new style’s fill color that is applied (as I would expect). Going back to the previous style and the fill color returns to what it is in the style, overriding the custom settings of the Properties palette.

Maybe we should give the users freedom to modify their styles on the go from within the Properties palette and simply warn or ask them if they want to create a new style based on the one they just modified and save and add it to the Style palette? Anyhow, imho we should give it some more thoughts.

This remains a valid bug in 1.2.1 non-cvs. It should also be noted that width is not an option during style creation, but it available in both Text Editor and the Properties window. Will put up some screen shots for illustration.

Line spacing not until we get the new text system and remove the limits of one line spacing per frame.

closing this, since 1.2.x is dead, not fixable in 1.3.3 and it's fixed in 1.3.4
