How to Remove Double Spacing Between Paragraphs?

I imported a Word doc into Scrivener that has double spaces between paragraphs. I indented the first line of every paragraph and now want to change the double spaces to single spaces. I tried doing this in format > text > spacing but no dice. What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

I would try Documents > Convert > Formatting to Default Text Style. This will bring up a dialog that will let you choose what to leave unconverted, and once you’ve made appropriate selections there, hopefully will change everything to single spacing (if that is the default).

Thanks for your reply but that seems a little dicey to me. According to the dialog box, once I’ve tried that I can’t undo it. So if it doesn’t work I’m in trouble. Also the double spacing between paragraphs was how the imported doc was formatted. I just don’t want it formatted that way now.

There has to be a simple solution to this. After all, it’s a pretty basic formatting change I want to make. I’ve tried googling it and have searched the Scrivener manual and the forum. Surely I can’t be the only person who’s wanted to make such a change. So who’s done it and how did you do it?

Finally worked it out. Not sure if this is the best way to do it, but this is what I did:

With the whole document selected, I set the spacing menu in the format bar to 1.0. Then I went into the format menu, clicked the text sub-menu, and changed the line spacing to “Multiple” and the “At” to 1.2.
