Shortly: It opens small window where you can change in some degree fontspacing of current paragraph or selected text and linespacing of paragraph(s) and immediately see the results.
Doesn't work in frames!
In my work I often use OOo for publishing booklets,
small magazines and so on. And in order to give
the text nice look I alwayse needed to use fontspacing
and linespacing. And you know, you have to open the
appropriate dialog, make changes and then close it
to see the result. It takes much time.
This small macro does the same job (even better,
for fontspacing it uses not only the decimal values,
but also half of decimal), and you see your changes
It opens a small window where you can choose your
fontspacing and linespacing values. Not all range of values
you can use. I put there only those, which have the sence
for desktop publishing, that changed text was not much
different from usual text. So it works in fontspacing from
-0.5pt to 0.5pt, and in linespacing from 80% to 150%.
Unfortunately, I don't know yet how to make it working in frames.
Feel free to use it and share this tool.
Any comments and suggestions (and moreover program code,
for it is the top of my current knowledge of OO Basic) send to

This macro is the part of macroset "Типографика для ООо"
which has more features for publishing, but useful only for
