I am using LibreOffice Writer in Ubuntu 14.04. I save my document as a .doc file. For documentation purposes I copy text from a terminal window to my document in Writer. When I first paste the text all is fine. However, after I exit and restart the program, all my pasted text has an extra line between each line which was pasted. In Format->paragraph->Indents and Line Spacing I have everything set to 0. Line spacing is set to “Single”. If I type a line of text and hit enter, I don’t get an extra space. It only happens when I copy and paste from a terminal window. When I view non-printing characters, I see a single paragraph mark after each line. After restarting the software, I have two paragraph marks after each line.
How can I prevent this behavior. I can’t keep going back and removing every other blank line. I just want the program to keep all text the same as how it was when it was pasted.
