Glossary index


The leading is a term used in typography to describe the vertical space between lines of text in a printed or digital document. The leading affects the readability and aesthetic of the text and can be adjusted to fit the specific needs of a project. A larger leading can improve the readability of the text, while a smaller leading can be used to increase the text density on a page. The leading is typically expressed in points, where one point is equal to 1/72 of an inch.
