    Calculate line count and add x picas per line to space after

    SaucyRooster Level 1

      Hello wiz kids,

       

      I'm attempting to setup another document with some styles for Q & A. I've tried to setup a style that is 2 pts shy of the document baseline and want to add the two points back to the space-after depending on the line count. So, bare with me the client is very demanding as far as filling every possible gap with copy, for example say the doc is:

       

      Baseline 12 pt

      Body copy 9/12

      Questions 8/10

       

      If the line count measures 1 line the space after is 1p2

      If the line count measures 2 lines the space after is 1p4

      If the line count measures 3 lines the space after is 1p6

      If the line count measures 4 lines the space after is 1p8


      Is there a way to automagically calculate this and set it in the paragraph style?


      Thank you in advance.
