Line spacing driving me crazy

Hi there,

I have a problem with line spacing and I feel the solution is going to make me feel very silly, but I haven’t found it yet. I often have texts in Scrivener that will simply not respond to line spacing adjustments. There will be a huge gap between one sentence and the next that’s impossible to change with the ‘Set line spacing’ menu on the right of the pane’s toolbar, but I have no idea where it’s coming from.

What’s going on?!

What happens when you click on ‘Other’ at the bottom of that menu? What values do you have for paragraph spacing ‘before’ and ‘after’?

Yes, your “invisibles” show a carriage return after each line, which means a new paragraph (usually).
