I'm not sure, this is a bug. The first of your frames has the font size=60pt and leading=72pt. The second, chained frame has the font size =12pt and leading=14.4pt. The text in the second frame has the font size=60pt and leading=14.4pt. It seems that you have to change the text properties of the second frame before chaining it to the first frame.

IMHO this is a bug. If the font size changes across text frames, but leading doesn't, it's hard to change text properties for one text (without styles) in linked frames. Changing text properties in a _frame_ that is linked to others should affect the whole _text_, not text in a single frame.

BTW, I tried with another document, and in this case, the spacing between letters was messed up (smaller than in the first frame). This was in So there's something wrong.

I couldn't reproduce this. Can someone else reproduce?
I'm marking resolved for the time being until someone confirms

as far as i can tell, it's not possible to reproduce the bug because it's currently not possible to change the formatting of the character when the cursor is at the end of the frame... (at least not in 1.5.0)

which is a bug by itself.

Ahh, thanks Peter. I couldn't find 0013135 and 0012953
Great. I'm going to resolve this issue in that case.
