Do you have any tricks or tips how to calculate your settings for increments (baseline grid), space after (paragraph), margins etc.?
I would like a good structure for my design (magazine), where most of the text lines go on the same lines, so not on different lines throughout the design. I mean that when you have 2 columns of text, they bove are aligned identically.
Next to that I would like some good settings for the margins?
Baseline grids should match the body text leading, and if you want to keep the text aligned to the grid, set space before/after to the same value.
Margins are largely a matter of taste. I prefer larger to smaller margins so there's a place to put one's fingers and thumbs, and so the pages don't look crowded.
