Description mikek 2018-06-01 21:36:25 UTC
Fixed Line Spacing displays different numbers and behaves differently between the Paragraph Formatting pane and the Formatting Toolbar (the same number entered in both places exhibits different effects: 0.11 in one, for example, is much smaller than 0.11 entered in the other).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some text
2. Enter 0.11 in the Line Spacing/Fixed/Value field in the toolbar
3. Look at Format/Paragraph/Indents&Spacing and you'll see it says something different, if you change that to 0.11 it will exhibit different behavior

Actual Results:  
The line spacing did not match and it was difficult to predict the behavior

Expected Results:
The line spacing would be the same and it would match regardless of which field you entered the number

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

It looks like the spacing measurement in the Toolbar is half of what it is in the Paragraph Formatting box, so 0.08" in the toolbar shows up as 0.16" in the box.
