    Hi all-

    I’m new to WordPress, not savvy with html, and just starting to type my first post. Perhaps no one else has found issue with this, but I would like to be able to press “enter/return” and have the cursor skip down one line instead of 2. Or, at the very least, I would like to just be able to make this decision on my own at the appropriate times, instead of having it preformatted for me all the time. Does anyone know how to turn off the double spacing? I can copy/paste an html if that’s what it takes.

    For example:

    No Double Spacing:
    A Case for Single Spaces

    NOT–

    No Double Spacing:

    A Case for Single Spaces

    Thanks,
    lttopp

    Press shift-return for a single break (no blank line in between).

    is there a way to have x4 spacing ? each time i want more space in my posts they automatically get formatted to x2 spacing ! like wordpress.com just has to make everything tidy =[

    For a blank line you use this (in the html post or page editor):
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    To increase the leading (space between lines) you use this code:
    <span style="line-height:1.8;">YOUR_TEXT_HERE</span>
    (1.8 is an example – can be any number.)
