It's funny. I'm so used to just looking at the Scripter API online that it didn't even occur to me that there was a version specific copy installed with 1.3.6. Sure enough, setLineSpecingMode() is not listed there. That seems a bit odd to me but I'm sure there was a good reason.

It's not obvious to me where this would be done. There doesn't seem to be any place in File => preferences for this. The "Tools" page seems the most reasonable place for it but I don't see it there.

Yes, I could to that. Anyway, setting the line spacing with scribus.setLineSpacing() to the same as the font size seems to give me what I want. Thanks.
