typography documentation?

Greetings -

I noticed the Amazon list screen has a larger space between rows of text in the list, than does my channel with ListScreen. I am searching for any information about how this might be accomplished.

I looked at these pages but did not find the answer
http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ ... Typography
http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/roFont
http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ifFont

On page 13 of the "DesignGuidelines" document (PDF from Nov 2010) under "3.2.6 Focus text for list screens and episode picker screens" it says that "Font type, size, and placement: Predetermined by the SDK." I don't see anything about line spacing ...

How to change the font size or to increase the leading (line spacing between lines) in the list?

Re: typography documentation?

The line spacing is based on the size of your highlight image (ListItemHighlightHD, ListItemHighlightSD)

a-ha, so by making the image twice as tall with transparent tops and bottoms I can create the effect of larger spacing. Will give it a try, thank you Chris!

edit: it works! Smiley Very Happy
