Select the paragraph and then go to Format, Paragraph, Indents & Spacing tab, Line Spacing for plenty of options.

Right click to open the context menu > Line Spacing. There you go

This issue is precisely why I just DELETED Libre and went back to Open office. You select help and the help for Libre is SHODDY, badly written and unclear. You do NOT put out a program such as this without clear help. For example, look for line spacing and ALL THAT LIBRE'S HELP GIVES YOU IS "Open context menu - choose Line Spacing."

Really? WHERE IS "CONTEXT MENU." The above THANK YOU!!!! Explains "Select the paragraph and then go to Format, Paragraph, Indents & Spacing tab, Line Spacing" THEN YOU open the context menu > Line Spacing.

This kind of shoddy work is unacceptable. Until Libre can handle a basic help answer for something as fundamental as line spacing, I'm outta here.

LibreOffice is an open-source product, ie. a community effort. Anyone can contribute to improving the documentation:

and that comment totally misses that offline help basically is identical to help. The two didn't diverge that much yet, both have 90% or more same functionality and thus same help content.

PS: Context-menu is the menu that opens when you click with the right mouse-button

select the text you want to change, right click on that and you will find the context menu. hope that helps.
