Adding space at top of title page

Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Q. I'm using the SW 2.5 Style Editor to modify the Style Editor Article Style. I used the Space{} command to insert space at the top of the title page, but SW seems to ignore it. How can I get the spacing I want?

A. The Space{} command adds vertical or horizontal space, but it works only between Display Elements.

To get the spacing you want at the top of an exceptional page (such as the title page), you must use the Style Editor to change the Page Format parameters. Specifically, you must change the length of the Top Margin, which is the distance from the top of the page to the top of the header. From the Margins menu, choose Top Margin and make the change you want.

You may also want to change the dimensions of the Head Height and Vertical Space After Head, which are available from the Head/Foot Dimensions item. When these two dimensions are zero, the Top Margin length is the distance from the top of the page to the top of the text.
