Are you saying you want the lines within each list item tighter, but some space between items?
Sounds like you adjusted the leading to provide the space. Leading should be set for the correct distance between the lines within the list item, then either space before or space after added to the paragraph style to separate the items.
OK, the style for the numbered list has a set leading. But when a line wraps, I want to make the leading tighter. This would only be for lines that wrap. I don't think space before or after would do that without affecting the leading that is already set for the numbered list.
That's the point. The leading specification should be for the wrapping lines. If you need addtional space between numbered items it should be added as space before or space after the paragraph.
Got it! Thanks!
