Can you tell me how to journal on a lined journal mat? I can’t seem to get the correct font/size so that it lines up correctly!
Sure Amy! We will start where Creating a Text Path for Journaling Mats Part 1 left off – with a bunch of text inside a fitted path.
As you can see, my text does not line up with lines on the journaling mat. We are going to fix that.
Click on the move tool and then use your arrow keys to nudge your text up or down so that the first line of text sits on a line of your journaling mat. Now click on the text tool and click and drag on your canvas to highlight all of your text.
Go to Window>Character to bring up the Character Palette.
On the right side of the palette you’ll see an icon with two letter A’s, one on top of the other. This indicates the leading setting. It’s likely set on Auto, but click on the drop down arrow to the right and you can manually set the leading.
If none of the numbers in the drop down menu gets you quite the right fit, you can type any number into the field as well (including decimals). In my case 31pt gives me the perfect fit.
