Paragraph Rules Dialogue Re-design
Re-design the Paragraph Rules section of the Paragraph Styles dialogue. See attached. The mockup is not refined, but it looks like it will work.
Hydra's enhancement is a very good idea. A discreet little COPY button in each section would do it.
Absolutely! It is much better UX to see all the settings instead of using a drop-down to select. Since they all fit, this would be more convenient in many ways.
As a general rule, if there are only a few choices, radio buttons or tabs are better than drop-downs. Better yet, show all the choices at once if there's room
One big problem with drop-downs is that you have to click just to see what the choices are. These controls should only be used when there are too many choices to show them all at once.
Yes, and/or with the ability to copy settings from one to the other (above to below or vice-versa)
That would be very helpful!

With this new design, you can see both the Rule Above and the Rule Below settings at once.
