line spacing

    How do I alter the line spacing to increase or decrease after a carriage return?

    Are you the ‘happiness engineers’ – i.e. paid by wordpress, or just the folk who do their work, unpaid, for them?

    Blog editors and word processors are not the same and do not work the same way. The web standard is one blank line only, so you cannot add more blank lines by pressing return repeatedly like you would do with a typewriter or in a word processing application. If you want to learn yow to format and space your posts and pages see:

    If you are working in the Visual editor, to get single spacing between paragraphs hold the SHIFT key down and simultaneously click ENTER at the end of the paragraph.

    If you are working in the HTML (Text) editor, a single click of ENTER will give you a single-spaced line, and two clicks of ENTER will result in double spaced lines.


    Thank you fellow toiler at the coal-face.
