How can I move the text down in a Strater text log a little so it doesn't appear to touch the top line?

When you create a complex text log from an interval table, and the Vertical Alignment is set to Top (so that it appears at the top of each interval), there isn't a way to add extra space to the top of all intervals at once, but there are a couple of work arounds:

Option 1: In the borehole view, double click on one of the intervals (or select the text log, choose an interval from the Block item list in the Property Manager, and click the Edit button). The text will open in the Text Editor dialog. Add an extra line before the beginning of the text in the Text Editor and click OK. Repeat these steps for each interval.


Option 2: In the data table, add the syntax "\n " or "\dn100 " (including a space after the last character) in front of each text field. These are special text commands that tell Strater to add an extra line or shift the text down 100% of the font size. If you want a smaller space, decrease the number ("\dn75 " or "\dn50 "). For example, in the data table, instead of:

     Massive silica cut by tm and ep veins.

you can type:

     \dn50 Massive silica cut by tm and ep veins.

and the text in those intervals will be spaced down from the top of the interval.
