Q - question

How to influence line spacing in AutoCAD texts?

A - answer You can set line spacing in AutoCAD MText (since R2000i); for DText it is set in the font definition (you can define it in the SHX font).

In MTexts (paragraph text) you can set line spacing either to "At least" or "Exactly". "At least" means that the smallest line height is given by the height of the used text. "Exactly" means fixed line spacing independent on the text height.

See the Properties window (Ctrl+1) for MText objects and the TSPACETYPE and TSPACEFAC variables and the -MText command (commandline version, the Line spacing option).
