Weird spacing issue in title when compiling

Alright, so I’ve been getting my compile settings for my manuscript fine tuned. There’s just one thing I can’t figure out.

I’ve attached the formatting ini, though I had to change the extension to doc to upload it. Change it back to ini if you want to check it out. As far as I can tell, there is no difference between how I am formatting “Level 1” and “Level 3+”

However, the paragraph under the level 1 title is double-spaced, and the paragraph under the level 3 title is not double-spaced. Here’s the difference:

Level 1 title


Level 3 title


Level 2 is also single spaced.

How can I fix this? I see no option for changing the spacing of the paragraphs beneath the title. Here’s a screenshot of the compile dialog for each:

Hi, jtstoll, and welcome to the forum!

I suggest you to check the Section Layout… of each level to make them equivalent. There may be additional paragraph markers in there (particularly in Level 1).

Hope this helps!

You can adjust paragraph spacing by clicking into the text to select it, then choosing “More…” from the spacing drop-down menu in the format bar (where it shows “2.0” in your screenshots).
