Summary0008870: Show the value of what the linespacing will be when "Align to Baseline Grid" or "Auto" is chosen in the Style Manager
DescriptionAs summary

The value of linespacing is always displayed and is always the value of the "Fixed Linespacing". This is not very useful.

I suggest that the value shown should be either the percentage set in the Prefs for Auto linespacing when this option is picked, or the linespacing of the Baseline Grid when the choice is this. That way, there is no confusion and the info is completely useful.

If the display field cannot be set as proposed, I suggest then that we have the 3 fields displayed and that the options for the linespacing are all shown (no pulldown menu) and that we pick the one we want through the mean of mutually exclusive radio buttons.

Another way would be to not display the value at all when the choice is not Fixed Linespacing (not just greyed out as it is right now).

We have many choices for solving that issue. The actual one could benefit from any other choice, imo.
