Inconsistent space between paragraphs

Hi folks,

 

I am running into a perplexing problem at the moment. I recently changed the paragraph style for my main body text from there being a space between paragraphs to no space and a first line indent. Seems simple enough to do. Unfortunately, the results are inconsistent. For some paragraph breaks it looks just fine. For others there is still a space between the breaks and the indented first line. Space after and space before are both at 0 px. I have tried backspacing, and then pressing enter again, but the result is the same. I have re-applied the paragraph style, and checked for overrides.  Any ideas????

 

I am using InDesign CC. Just moved from CS6. Maybe that was a mistake.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Andrew Barton

    @Andrew – Can you show us some screen shots?

    With "Show Hidden Characters°…

    "Show Baseline Grid" enabled
    And frame edges showing…

     

    What will happen, if you export to IDML and open that in InDesign CS6 ?

    You're aligning the first line of the paragraph to the Grid. See the control right below space b/a.

    @Andrew – exactly that what Douglas said.

     

    @Douglas – since you are from the engineering team:

    It would be a big step forward for InDesign having a baseline grid control for every page and every section especially (but not exclusively) for ADPS users.

     

    Are you currently working on such a feature, and if yes, when can we expect implementation?

    We are not working on grids, sorry.

     

    Please explain more about why this would be useful for your workflow.

    @Douglas – thank you for answering.

     

    I'll answer that in a few hours  in more detail. Have to visit a customer right now…

     

    But a brief answer right now:

     

    It's all about versioning of layouts or better put: alternate layouts in one document.
    If you resize a layout a  global baseline grid will force layouters not to use it at all.

     

    Several pages with the same layout (but differently sized) need different baseline grid settings.

     

    Of course, there are various other applications of a baseline grid controlled by every page or section.
