What version of Mathematica are you using and on what OS? I am using
V6.0.3 on a Mac OS X and changing the LineSpacing parameter works as
expected by just clicking on the value and changing either or both of
the arguments. Is the cell editable? Look at the "Editable" parameter
in OptionInspector. And you also have to have the "Set" box checked.
And click on the "Apply" button at the top of the window or click on
another parameter to make the change be applied to the cell(s)
HTH...If it doesn't post some specific code so we can see exactly what
you trying to do.
