Auto leading for text
Please add auto leading for text. It would be great being able to set up the auto leading for the document like in Illustrator or Indesign (Auto leading: 120 %)

This is a no-brainer. Have an auto setting for type.
Further, add all the type controls to the character styles!! And tell us what text is set to what character style.

Isn't the info below by Miguel not enough? When is this coming. Just put an check box for auto. So we can toggle between manual or auto line height. Thanks!

I don't understand, auto leading is not about defaulting it when you place 0. I don't get how someone from Adobe does not check how Illustrator, Indesign and Photoshop work... I get you guys are different teams but that's just weird.
So let me ellaborate on what we mean when we say we need "auto-leading":
When selecting auto-leading for a text, changing font size will proportionately apply a lead, so that the distance between two lines remains the equivalent ratio.
In practice, the difference between having auto-lead and not having is:
EXAMPLE WITH NO AUTO LEAD:
if you have a font that is 16pt and have a lead of 16pt, changing font size to 8pt will leave you with text that has a huge gap between two lines.
EXAMPLE WITH AUTO LEAD:
Having a font that is 16pt and auto-lead (percentage to 120% or something -- value has to be changeable), changing font size to 8pt will leave a gap proportionate to the font-size, and no huge gap in sight.
It's easier to show than talking about it, so i uploaded a video showing how auto-lead works in illustrator.

something like in InDesign
Indeed a must have. Text leading should have the "Auto" option like in Illustrator or InDesign as each font size has a different leading and you don't have to manually set it for eat in order to look good.
