|Summary||0013216: Paragraph Style Space Above bug|
|Description||Paragraph Style Space Above setting gets ignored in the first paragraph in a textbox.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Create new document|
Create text box
Create some text (2 paragraphs)
Open Styles editor
Create new Paragraph Style
Assign a 'Space Above' (i.e. 20pt)
Apply style to both paragraphs
Observe that only 2nd paragraph gets the 'space above'
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||This is expected behavior. The text distance to frame are controlled by text distance and first line offset properties which are frame properties and which can be accessed from properties palette.|
I understand that first line offset and text distance are ways to control the position of text, but I can't really see how this should be expected behavior for styling.. With this you make the first paragraph behave different from others.. that can't be right to my mind.. A style is a style.. no matter where it is..
Furthermore, there is no way to incorporate the offsets in the style definition..
So in my case (having textboxes beneith 30 photographs in one document) to change about 30 vertical offsets, I have to do them all by hand.. if the style respected the space above, like it should to my mind, changing one option would be sufficient.
I can't tell you what to do ofcourse but I hope you'll reconsider..
Thanks very much!
just had somebody check how Adobe InDesign behaves..
it seems that it follows the same behaviour as Scribus..
The chances you're going to change to my proposal are very dim I would suspect, since this is 'standard' and or import-proof behaviour.. strange, but hey, who am I..
Thanks for your efforts
||That is an interesting use-case. It sounds valid. I wonder if there is another way to achieve it ?|
i think that the use case is better solved with a top margin in the frame...
so, the solution is probably to provide "frame styles"...
||So, in other words, open a request to discuss the option of adding 'Frame Styles' to Styles Menu ?|
||There is already one: 0004622|
