Default changing font size without changing leading

Is there any way of changing a word's font size without changing the leading of the paragraph?


I may be asking the impossible, but any suggestions most welcome.
Thanks
carol

Default Leading

In the paragraph options, under Line spacing, you can choose "at least" or "exactly" and enter a number of points (e.g., 12 pt). Note that you can also choose "Multiple" and put in a decimal number, such as 1.25; you're not confined to whole-number multiples.

The question then is, what are you starting with? The default is "single," which is some number chosen by Microsoft as a reasonable leading, such as 12 pts for a 10-pt font.
However, this doesn't appear to be revealed in the usual places, though it is undoubtedly somewhere. Here is a link to some more info.

Does this solve your problem?
