Have you considered using tables?
I have tried using tables but I found it to be slower than the method I described in my question...
- Set up the column width on that page to the value you need for spacing.
- Draw a rectangle/text frame/graphic frame and
- as you draw (don't release the mouse button) work with the arrow keys up and down.
Or go to Layout > Create guide lines and add your values there and draw your rectangles between these guide lines.
WOW Will!! I didn't know that trick... AWESOME!!! Thanks a lot!!!!
