That would be great to have the small arrows, like in Illustrator that allows us to go higher or lower with the font size or leading values for example.

That would allow us to see our text changing without needing to have it highlighted (which does not give us a realistic view of our text)

Try something like this:

1. Select (highlight the text)

2. press Ctrl+H (Command+H) to turn off the highlight of the text.

3. Use the scrubby sliders in the character and paragraph panels.

I did'nt think of hiding the highlight. But it is still more steps compare to Illustrator. So it's not planned, is it?

It's not planned at this time, but that's what this forums is for. Letting people suggest ideas to see which ones bubble up to the top when customers weight in.

That, or you can highlight the field you want to change and use the up and down arrows to increment by 1 digit or hold down the Shift key and use the up and down arrows to increment by 10.

This one I knew, but we have to highlight the text no? And we still have more steps than in Illustrator to reach the same goal. Anyway, that's very kind of you. Thanks.
