Double spacing/Paragraph problem workaround

  1. Hi,

    I've been on WP.com for a few years now and when I started, I used to have the following problem all the time, then from one day to the next, it would fix itself. Anyways, it's been a very long time since I've had a spacing issue but it's back again (for me, at least) on one of my newly-made pages. I'm using the latest Firefox on Mac OS 10.6, btw.

    So when all of you, who have made spacing problem topics here, just can't seem to get the spacing to work (by pressing return, shift-return or even doing it via HTML code), whether it be double-spacing or paragraphs, I made a simple workaround. Take a screenshot or find a small blank white image (depending on the color of your background) and insert it into the area you wish was spaced properly. Works like a charm. Oh, and you'll probably want to erase the link to that blank image in the image editor so that it's not clickable once published.

    Cheers

  2. You know, I'm on Mac and in nearly 4 years of using wordpress, I have never had any issues with this, and if I do there is an easier fix.

    If you have paragraph spacing issues, it is because the editor is in "div" mode rather than paragraph mode.

    If it happens, select all the stuff in the text window in the editor then go to the formatting pulldown at the left end of the lower editor toolbar and select "paragraph" from the pulldown. Magic, problem solved. Now hitting return gives you a blank line between paragraphs and shift-return give a line feed but no blank line.

    In particularly obstinate cases the above solution by tudobeleza can be used, but you can also use just a period (.) on the line in between and then make it the color of your content area background.
