Here is the problem I have with my text frame when I double click the corner

First baseline offset options

To change the first baseline options of a selected text frame, choose Object > Text Frame Options, and click the Baseline Options tab. The following options appear in the Offset menu under First Baseline:

Ascent

The height of the “d” character in the font falls below the top inset of the text frame.

Cap Height

The top of uppercase letters touch the top inset of the text frame.

Leading

Use the text’s leading value as the distance between the baseline of the first line of text and the top inset of the frame.

X Height

The height of the “x” character in the font falls below the top inset of the frame.

Fixed

Specify the distance between the baseline of the first line of text and the top inset of the frame.

Min

Select a minimum value for the baseline offset. For example, if Leading is selected and you specify a minimum value of 1p, InDesign uses the leading value only when it’s greater than 1 pica.
