Independent paragraph spacing options (before/after)
Like photoshop, being able to set left/right indents. Also having the ability to set different before/after spacing and leading in the same text box to eliminate having to have a lot of text boxes on an artboard.
Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best if you separate out your feedback by individual feature requests. I’ll change this ticket to focus on independent before/after paragraph spacing.

When defining a text style there is no possibility to define the space after a paragraph? This ist basic for all text-editing.
Second: When you use a text box with different text styles it is NOT possible to define different spaces after the paragraphs. Also basic
Yes, please look at InDesign as a reference for text styles functionalities.
Now, when I have paragraph style and i need to add different colors i need to create another style with another color. This is very uncovinient.

yes I man the character styles.
Copying color: Thanks, that helps.
Revealing character styles by clicking on text: It is not only about choosing a style. It is also important to see if the text is already formatted by a character style. Sometimes you forget choosing a style or didn't choose all characters. An indicator would be good.

Hi Andreas. Can you please elaborate?
Are you speaking of the character styles in the assets pane?
The edit dialog speaks RGB, Hex, or HSB there is a drop down to the left of the textual color input field.
You can right click on any text node and reveal character style in the assets pane. It's not always you want to auto-scroll the assets pane when you select a text node...because of course you might be trying to apply a new one.
Agree with you on the saved colors...will file that issue for sure.
Thanks for the clarification.

For me the paragraph styles have only little usability. Too many features are lacking. The system of InDesign is on my opinion the best practice
For example if I want to change the color, I want to see my all my saved colors in the dialog so I can choose them.
I can copy the color values but only in Hex. But the dialog speaks only RGB.
All functions should be available in the paragraph styles
Renaming should be possible in the dialog
When I choose a text I want to see which paragraph style is applied.
Indesign is really a good blue print for the work flow of designers and we are used to it.
