You can set the line space of the paragraph, its space before and space after using the TextParagraph.LineSpace, TextParagraph.SpaceBefore and TextParagraph.SpaceAfter respectively. The following example shows how to Set Line Spacing of the Paragraph in a Shape or Textbox.

[C#]

// For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/aspose-cells/Aspose.Cells-for-.NET
// The path to the documents directory.
string dataDir = RunExamples.GetDataDir(System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod().DeclaringType);

// Create a workbook
Workbook wb = new Workbook();

// Access first worksheet
Worksheet ws = wb.Worksheets[0];

// Add text box inside the sheet
ws.Shapes.AddTextBox(2, 0, 2, 0, 100, 200);

// Access first shape which is a text box and set is text
Shape shape = ws.Shapes[0];
shape.Text = "Sign up for your free phone number.\nCall and text online for free.";

// Acccess the first paragraph
TextParagraph p = shape.TextBody.TextParagraphs[1];

// Set the line space
p.LineSpaceSizeType = LineSpaceSizeType.Points;
p.LineSpace = 20;

// Set the space after
p.SpaceAfterSizeType = LineSpaceSizeType.Points;
p.SpaceAfter = 10;

// Set the space before
p.SpaceBeforeSizeType = LineSpaceSizeType.Points;
p.SpaceBefore = 10;

// Save the workbook in xlsx format
wb.Save(dataDir + "output_out_.xlsx", SaveFormat.Xlsx);
