Using Draw, but this should apply across all apps.
Can you change the internal margins of a text box? Not using paragraph spacing, tabs, font size etc. just set where you want the text inside the box to start?
I’m trying to create diagrams that unfortunately have a lot of text and where the boxes are getting quite small to fit with the graphics around them, the margins become relatively large to the font, wasting space and sometimes making it difficult to get in the numbers of words required for clarity.
There are lots of ways to format text but I haven’t found a way to set the internal margin i.e. top/bottom/left/right for spacing within a text box.
I know that you can set paragraph formatting to increase these, but I actually want to reduce these and all the formatting dialogues don’t seem to take negative offsets.
I’ve found very little comment about this, so I’m wondering if it’s even possible.
I did find a thread in a bug tracker https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41542 which seems related but from what I can tell is specifically related to removed borders. It’s not even clear whether this has been implemented yet.
As it happens, many of my text boxes are borderless as they are superimposed over other graphic objects to give the appearance of being related - and yes I am aware of the text properties of objects and no I can’t use those because they seem to have less control in terms of text positioning etc.
