There is no manual line spacing in Text-Tool available. You cannot write manual numbers to define the line space. You can select from the pull-down menu for line spacing the defined presets but no own edit is available. If you write a manual edit in the field for line spacing Photoshop bugs an you can erase the field for hours, there ist no end with numbers.

Hi Marco,

I believe you are referring to the Leading control which is found in the upper-right corner of the Character panel.  If you look at the graphic, it's the control set to 17pts.  In all versions of Photoshop, you can either manually enter a value or choose one from the dropdown to set the space between lines.



Now, in the 19.0 release, there was a bug with transformed type and Leading values.  You have two solutions.  Either update your Photoshop to the latest (19.0.1) where the bug is fixed OR just don't use transformed type.  Either way, the Leading control will work.

Hope that helps,
David
