I'm making a map and have to set the line leading for some 21pt text to 24pt, to follow our branding guidelines. Unfortunately, ArcMap represents their default leading as "0" (I'm assuming that's 0pt, but I suppose it could be some other unit) without ever actually mentioning what the default leading actually is, as a percentage of the text size.

Does anyone happen to know?

Bump.

You know what's frustrating? Googling a problem, and only being able to find the unanswered thread you yourself started a few months ago. :(

Hi Noel
I believe the text Leading is measured in units, not percentage.  The units default is points, as shown in the upper right hand corner of the text Editor window.  Note that changing the units, will convert all measurements in the Editor, so if you have specific text sizes designated in points, I would stick to the default points unit.
