Paragraph

Auto Leading is enabled when “auto” or “0” is entered in the Leading field on the Measurements palette or in the Formats dialog box. When Auto Leading is used, you may see variable spacing between lines within the same paragraph, because it calculates the leading separately for each line based on the point size of the largest character per line. An increment can be entered instead of “auto” or “0.” If you enter “+2,” for example, 2 points will be added to the point size of the text to arrive at the leading amount (thus, 10-point text would have 12-point leading). The Auto Leading setting affects both newly created and existing text.

If Maintain Leading is on and an item is positioned within a column of text, the first line of text that's forced below the obstructing item will snap to the nearest leading increment (allowing for the current Item Runaround value), thereby enabling text baselines to align across columns. With Maintain Leading off, text will be offset from the bottom of an obstructing item only by any existing Item Runaround value, making it difficult, but not impossible, to align text across columns.
