Default How to get the exact same space between specified text boxes or objects

I am creating a price list and would like it to appear uniform throughout.

However, I cannot find anywhere that I can specify an exact spacing between one text box (or object) and the next.

The only way I appear to be able to achieve a relatively uniform appearance, is to either do it by eye, or to sit with a plastic ruler pressed against the screen whilst nudging the text box to a desired distance from the one above.

Surely there should be a more accurate way to specify the vertical distance between text boxes?
I know there is the Layout Tab of the Format Text Box, however this only appears to specify a position from left or right Top Corner or from the Center of the page, which is not what I require.

Can anyone help me please

Hi, Croptop,

I've had the same problem. I just eyeballed things. I figured if I couldn't see the spacing was off, no one else would.

I researched on line and found this:

Does this help?

I know "distribute horizontally" and "distribute vertically" are options in PowerPoint, but I haven't seen them in Publisher.
