double spacing

    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


    No Double Spacing:

    A Case for Single Spaces



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



    Oh thank you so much. I hope all of my inevitable questions have answers this easy.


    You’re very welcome, and hopefully they do.



    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 just has to make everything tidy =[


    For a blank line you use this (in the html post or page editor):
    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.)
