Line spacing UI is confusing, awkward


Here is the Axure 9 line-spacing UI:

There are a few oddities about it:

  • There is no indication what the current line spacing is; this is an important thing for anyone trying to match a style guide.
  • Hitting the down arrow (to make the line spacing smaller) does nothing
  • Hitting the up arrow (to increase the line spacing) sets the spacing to 1.
  • There is no way to revert to “auto” once you change it (unless you happen to know what auto is).

Something like the below would be clearer (assuming the up arrow goes to 17 and the down arrow goes to 15). Oh, and maybe make the text darker so you don’t have to turn your screen up to full brightness to read it.

+1 On all suggestions.
