Spectrum Theme: Problem with paragraphs and single lines

  1. Hello. First, thanks for any suggestions you will be kind enough to offer. Can't get single spacing in posts when I make a list. Is this not an option in Spectrum. For example, if I want to list something, I type the word, hit return, and then the next line is always double spaced. I am don't know coding or HTML, so I rely on the "visual" tab to do all my editing.

    word 1
    word 2
    word 3

    Instead it looks like

    word 1

    word 2

    word 3

    The blog I need help with is couponclippingforfreestuff.wordpress.com.

  2. you need to press Shift and then enter

    You will get double spacing between paragraphs in every theme here of which I’m aware. To get single spacing hold the SHIFT key down when you click ENTER at the end of the paragraph. This will put in a standard break (no blank line). In graphic design/page layout, it is called a soft return.

    1. To get standard line spacing on paragraphs (blank line between paragraphs) select all the text in the post, click on the “format” pulldown at the left end of the lower row of icons and select paragraph.

    2. If you want a standard paragraph break, at the end of a paragraph, press return/enter.

    3. If you want no blank line, hold down shift and then press return/enter.
