Attaching and scaling images

I am having a difficult time scaling and image I have attached to my work. I can scale it to the desired size, but the bottom half of the image is in my text and the top has a huge blank space between the image and my text. I have searched in the forums and looked in the tutorial but found nothing…maybe I missed something?

Are you using factor based line spacing on the image? If you have the graphic’s line spacing set to something like 1.2, then yes it will add 20% of the image height to the top of the image.

The fix is to select the image and change the line spacing to single spacing. This is a known quirk of the Apple text system.

All the best,
