Description: Hi [~kylecopas], [~Sampreethi], [~anmnielsen],

I'd suggest the line-height of this document be increased to 1.35 - 15.em. The current setting makes this long text somehow tiresome to read and is creating a grey-page effect.

Something that can be fixed in the template?]]>

Comment: I'm not following the 'grey-page effect'—but definitely agree with the classification of this as 'trivial'!

About 'grey-page effect', I couldn't find the English equivalent of the concept, which is a situation when the page is mainly text, and the line-height is tighter, it creates an visual impression of a page-sized grey block. It then costs a bit more energy to read, for a 10 page document.

It's not everywhere in the template, though. I find the print-outs of the GBIF Advocacy has more comfortable line-height. So it maybe just the particular paragraph style that needs slight adjustment and I am happy to help with that.

Comment: [] [~kylecopas] Please notice that if we do changes to the general template, we should consider updating all the GBIF templates which are based on the general template. Should we wait and hear if there are other comments to the template before we do any updates?

I think we're getting ahead of ourselves here.

The document in question was produced long before the template. It may or may not conform.

And I'm not inclined to make changes to that one template immediately, or, even if we did change the one, necessarily to all of them. We have many more pressing priorities right now. I was only half-joking when I mentioned I agreed with the 'trivial' priority setting. Can we leave this one alone for now, please?

Comment: Well, I do agree it's trivial. So, by explaining, I didn't mean to elevate this issue. Let's leave it alone for now - too many pressing issues at the moment. :)

Comment: I assume that this is a template - or it will be moved to a new template if so desired at some point . if not done yet, then it probably isn't a priority
