    Change the height of a paragraph break while using a 12pt baseline grid


      Hey all,


      I am laying out a newsletter – and I want to tighten up the layout a bit. Currently the body text is 9pt on 12pt leading as the baseline grid is 12pt. I think the gap between the paragraphs is too much, and I want to reduce the height.(This will save me some space!)  (See image)


      One solution although it's not really practical is to manually change the leading of the paragraph break to 4pt which reduces the gap to the desired size. But this is a longish newsletter and that would be a nightmare... (Hopefully this example gives you an idea of what I am looking to do)


      Another thing I tried was to take out the paragraph breaks and put a 1mm space after each paragraph. This works, until there is a different amount of paragraphs in a column causing the overall column lengths to be different heights. Not ideal.


      I don't really know what to call what I am looking for – so if anyone has any ideas for this, that would be great.


      Thanks in advance,
