space before/after paragraph is suddenly not working
when i try to add space before or after a paragraph, it shows up in the tools panel and in style sheets as being there, but it is not reflected in the actual text.
indesign cc 14.0.1
In your example, the paragraph ‘Introduction: My Life…’ and ‘Update’ use the same Paragraph Style and the setting ‘Space Between Paragraphs Using Same Style’ is set to 0p0. That’s why the Space After setting of 1p4 is having no effect.
To make it to work, change the ‘Space Between…’ back to its default setting of ‘Ignore’.
Hope this helps.

I was pulling my hair out over this too - I assumed setting space after at 0 meant 0! Never noticed 'ignore' before thank you....always learning.....

This just helped me so much. Thank you.
I've been battling this for hours. Thanks! Never noticed the 'Ignore'
Nope, not in 2021. Just moves spaces between lines in the first paragraph.
Oh my gosh you have just improved my life immeasurably. :)
okay, thanks! i have never noticed the Ignore setting before! i must have somehow changed it accidentally.
