I have a text box containing text. I know the shortcut to change the leading - alt + arrow keys
To use this shortcut I have to select the text which puts big black blocks through the text and I can't really see the leading.
Is there a way to use this keyboard shortcut without selecting the text and possibly just select the text box?
Is there a way to change the color of the text selection.
One can change the color of all the text in a Type Layer with a fill (alt-backspace for the foreground color).
One can change the leading from the Character Panel with the Scrubby Sliders or, when the field is selected, with the up and down arrows (might not update until hitting enter ot tab).
