Hey, all. So I'm finding that, for my current project in InDesign, I'm always having to adjust the "Space After" paragraph property manually. I'm working with a baseline grid of 4pt, so I want most paragraphs to have that 4pt (0.0554 in.) space after. The problem is that I'm working with mostly material that I didn't generate (it's an editing job), and even text that I import has that space at 0.0556 inches. Because all my leadings are multiples of 8pt, the snap to baseline grid forces two 4pt spaces after paragraphs (I also have to change every instance of .00007 in to 0 in, for lists where I don't want spaces).
So I've found the Find/Replace feature useful for applying formatting such as text size, leading, and underline options with a broad brush, but for whatever reason, I can't get it to work for Space After. I set the "Find Format" box to the space after I don't want, the "Change Format" box to the space after I do want, and then when I click find, it tells me it can't find any instances.
Anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong?
