When adding text to a layout with the Draw toolbar in ArcMap, the spacing between lines of text can be adjusted with the leading value. This allows fitting larger amounts of text into a smaller area, or to distribute text over a larger area. The image below shows two lines of text with the default spacing.
The steps below describe how to adjust the spacing between lines of text in an ArcMap layout.
Note: The default value of Leading for this text property is zero.
