[Solved] Stop automatic double space between paragraphs

Postby dcdaniel » Wed Jul 29, 2015 11:04 pm

Recently Open Office Writer began double spacing between paragraph when I depress the return key once. I would like to stop this. Thank you, Dan

Adjust your standard Paragraph style - probably either Text Body or Default - by using /Format /Styles and Formatting, clicking on first icon from left and right clicking on the style name in question and choosing Modify from the popup. Select the Indents and Spacing tab. Set Spacing Above paragraph and Spacing Below paragraph to 0 (zero). You may also wish to adjust Line spacing from the dropdown to change interline spacing.

Ditto, from me. He is always there with the correct answer when others don't know or are playing "1 am the guru" games. J
