Can't save script settings

I couldn’t find an answer to my problem in the forums. Hopefully it’s not a general bug:

I’m using script settings, opening a new project based on “undergraduate humanities essay”. I try to change the script settings for the block quote and the main text, adding a spacing before and after the text as well as the spacing of the lines. It does save the spacing but not the spacing before and after.

I tried saving the formatting but it just wouldn’t keep the formatting. As soon as I close the options that formatting goes back to no spacing before and after.

Thanks very much for any help you can give me. I also looked for templates or script formattings I could just download and use instead but didn’t find anything that would fit.
