Line Spacing Problem

I have been happily writing my novel in the following line spacing:

       xcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxc

xcxcxcxcxcxcxxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcx.
“Speak,” he said.
cxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxc
xcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcx.

Then, I inserted another Text document and suddenly, I’m typing like this:

       xcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxc

xcxcxcxcxcxcxxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcx.

       "Speak," he said.

       cxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxc

xcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcxcx.

And I don’t seem to be able to do anythung about it.

What am I doing wrong?

You might try selecting all the text in the problematic document, then checking Format > Text > Spacing to see if “Before” and “After” spacing have been set to something other than 0.00pt.

As to cause… don’t know. Could have gotten set that way manually. If the problematic document was created via right clicking previous document and doing Add > New From Template rather than Add > New Text, could be that came from the template used. Or something I’m completely missing.

Hope that is of some assistance.

Thank you so much.

I didn’t do what you suggested but your reply gave me an idea - it reminded me of something I saw in the manual.

Pointed to:

Documents => Convert and clicked on Formatting To Default Text Style…

and it worked!

Thank you :slight_smile:
