The Paragraph Marker appeared after and before each paragraph, but the troubling space between remains blank, unknowable and untractable by any means so far, other than manual backspacing and tabbing.
If backspacing and tabbing removes the extra space between paragraphs, it means that the space comes from the "Spacing > Above paragraph" and "Spacing > Below paragraph" settings. Changing those settings to 0 will remove the extra space between paragraphs. Backspacing then tabbing to move the line turns two paragraphs into one paragraph which eliminates the effect of the spacing settings where the backspace and tabs were inserted. You shouldn't change the spacing using that method. There is a limit to the number of characters that one paragraph can contain.
The line spacing setting changes the spacing between ALL lines. It can not be used to change spacing between paragraphs.
You can use the ^$ regular expression in Find & Replace to remove "space" (empty paragraphs) which was inserted by pressing the Enter key.
