I'm having a bit of a battle with 'rectangle' or 'paragraph' text in ArcGIS 10.1. I am ashamed to say that it is a tool that I only discovered today. Anyway, I digress.
I cannot for the life of me work out if or how to adjust the spacing between the lines (default seems to be quite wide and not proportional to font size).
I need to (or would like to) use it because I have a series of some 1300 maps to create using DDP - some of the attributes that I am pulling into the layout are quite long and need to wrap across multiple lines.
This is what the text box looks like with paragraph text (excuse the pixellation):
Note the rather excessive line gaps (roughly equivalent to 'paragraph' spacing in Word etc) and not being proportional to the font size. In this example, font sizes are set using the <fnt> tags, with the 'base' font size for the text box being set as 8 points.
Does anyone know how to alleviate this issue?
