|0001156: Auto-adjust column/frame leading to fit nearest line
|It could be very useful to have Scribus automatically adjust the leading on a block of text in a frame so that the text automatically fit the column neatly. If a line almost fit in the column, it could compress the rest of the text a little rather than leave a white gap at the bottom of the column. If there was a white gap where there is no more text to flow into the column, it could expand the text out to fit.
This would reduce the amount of manual tweaking required to get neatly fitting columns, and make life a lot easier when the text gets re-flowed as the user wouldn't need to unto and re-do their spacing tweaks.
Ideally this would be a frame attribute and would not affect the stored style of the text - it'd be applied on the fly. That would prevent problems when auto-adjusted text gets reflowed into another frame.
Of course, this couldn't eliminate manual column adjustment - it'd look terrible if a column was almost empty, for one thing.
This could work extremely well in conjunction with the text blocks in bug 0001155.
