In typesetting, page design, and word processing, the rule is that lines should be evenly spaced — that is, the baselines of rows within a paragraph should be equally far apart.

Descenders should be ignored. That does not appear to be how Pages works. I have no clue how Apple could have come up with a line spacing system that completely deviates from the standards of typesetting, word processing, and page design, but the default behavior is a mess and could turn a lot of people off of Pages as a serious word processing and page design solution.

Word 2008 line spacing

Move the Line slider left to decrease spacing or right to increase it. To specify a precise line spacing value, type a point value in the Line field, or click the Up Arrow or Down Arrow next to the field. Choose a line spacing option from the Line spacing popup menu that appears when you click the text below the line field. Standard line spacing Single, Double, Multiple : The space between lines is proportional to font size. Use this when the relative distance between ascenders parts of letters that extend to the top of the line and descenders parts of letters that extend below the line should remain fixed.

Single sets line spacing to single-spaced, and Double sets it to double-spaced. Multiple lets you set line spacing values between single and double, or greater than double. At Least: The distance from one line to the next will never be less than the value you set, but it may be larger for larger fonts in order to prevent overlapping text lines.

Use this when the distance between lines should remain fixed, but overlap is not desired if the text gets large. Exactly: The distance between the baselines. Between: The value you set increases the space between the lines, instead of increasing the height of the lines.

By contrast, double-spacing doubles the height of each line. Gary, Thanks for writing — you solved my problem! If you cut and paste text with bullet points from a webpage, it will drive you totally mental. Now to the meat of the letter. I do not have the newest version of pages so the version I used was 2. So I did some test and this is what I found: Pages had the same space between the lines of 19 pixels, as can be seen in the attachment left.

Anyway, I made a picture of the problem, but not sure I can attach it here.
