hi
the line height property works as long as its over 4mm but as soon as its under this value it doesn't work for the pdf output (it works in the html output). am i doing something wrong or is it really not working?
if it's not working is there a workaround?
i tested it on Eclipse BIRT Designer Version 4.2.1.v201209101448

thanks for any help

Can you attach an example showing exactly what you're seeing, so I can see all your settings?

if you let the 2 files run on html output and pdf output the lineheight setting works for both files on the html output but on the pdf output only for the one with more then +- 4mm

The PDF limitation comes with the text size. This may be deemed a feature. If you make the text size smaller, the line height is able to decrease to match. You can always log a bug for this in the bugzilla.

Unfortunately, I don't. If I run across something, I'll post it in here.

I don't know exactly where, but my guess would be in the pdf emitter code.
