Understanding Space Between... but I only have two bullets.

Feeling kind of silly here, but I can't get my head around this. I have templates with a Bullet style. In one document, I have a list with JUST TWO BULLETS. As sometimes happens, I've been asked to shift the second bullet down a bit to accommodate a very small diagram between the two bullets. It is an exception to the style and that's fine. Normally I'd go into Paragraph and tweak this instance. But if I click in the first bullet and try to change Space After, nothing happens. If I click in the Second bullet and try to change Space Before, nothing happens. I don't really want to mess with the style itself as I don't want this change elsewhere. I just want this... exception. How do I override the new feature and just put some extra space where I want it? Do I really have to create another style just to accommodate this quirk? I will if I have to, but it seems silly when all I want is the one-time override particular to this instance.

Hi @quoz: My guess is that the bullet spacing is defined using the somewhat-new Space Between Paragraphs Using the Same Style. Try increasing that value to override the spacing between the two bullet paragraphs. ~Barb

Are you doing this in the Control Panel? Do you maybe have a snap to baseline that is overriding your additional paragraph spacing?

Well, there we go. I tried messing with that "between paragraphs" setting but I don't think I had both bullets selected when I changed the setting. Not running on all cylinders yesterday. Thank you.
