ParagraphSpacing

ParagraphSpacing

is an option for Cell, StyleBox, and Style that specifies how much extra space to leave between successive paragraphs of text.

Details

  • ParagraphSpacing->{c,0} leaves an extra space of c times the height of the font in the paragraph.
  • ParagraphSpacing->{0,n} leaves an extra space of exactly n printer's points.
  • ParagraphSpacing->{c,n} leaves an extra space of c times the height of the font plus n printers points.
  • Paragraph breaks are taken to occur whenever an explicit newline character appears in a block of text.
  • ParagraphSpacing is added to LineSpacing to determine spacing between paragraphs.
  • A typical default setting is ParagraphSpacing->{0,0}.
  • ParagraphSpacing applies only to ordinary text, not Wolfram Language expressions.
  • Extra space specified by ParagraphSpacing is inserted before the first line of each paragraph. No extra space is inserted if the paragraph is at the beginning of a cell or a string.
