emphasized text Hello there,

Greetings to you. I am a novice when it comes to LibreOffice Writer. I just received a long text from my friend. I copied it and pasted it into a plain editor, the Notepad because the text had paragraphs all "unevenly" spaced. A lot of spaces between them.

Now, i want to create a little book from this text. So, after that i copied that text from Notepad and pasted it to LibreOffice writer (ctrl+shift+v) thinking that the "Spacing" issue would be solved. IT DIDN'T. When I changed this to "text body" the spaces between paragraphs widened even more.

I had a "style template" from another book. So, I thought that by importing that would solve the issue. Because anyways I am going to create a book just like the previous one.

Other elements got the changes from that previous document template style. But the spaces between the paragraphs remain the same. The space between paragraphs is 0.08" which is what I have set, but the paragraphs are all uneven.

But the space is very uneven.

I wonder if I have to go to each paragraph and hit the "backspace" for the whole text.

If there's way, could you please tell me. That would help me immensely.

Have you tried pasting as unformatted text, this will remove the current formatting. (ctrl+shift+v) then > unformatted text. You can then select all the text and change the paragraph and font formatting to match your needs....Peter
