en WordPress.com Forums › Support Spacing when Cut and Pasting ? Author Posts Jun 19, 2011 at 11:29 pm #636276 fdleydaMember When I cut and paste lines from my MS Word to my blog a line is add in between each sentence. i.e. My Word document is single spaced but when I paste it into the blog it becomes double spaced. How can I stop this from happening ? Thank you FDLeyda The blog I need help with is fdleyda.org.

You can either try using the paste from Word button on your post editor’s toolbar or else use a desktop application, such as Live Writer from Microsoft (Windows only).

To get single spacing hold the SHIFT key down when you click ENTER at the end of the paragraph. Space between lines. > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/category/space-betweeen-lines/ Space between paragraphs > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/category/space-between-paragraphs/ Formatting poetry http://en.support.wordpress.com/writing-and-formatting-poetry/ Jun 20, 2011 at 7:57 pm #636592 fdleydaMember Thank you TimeThief.
