I am new to Office writer.
MS Office allows paragraph spacing to vary depending on whether the next paragraph is the same style or a different style. Often you will want the same style paragraphs to have closer spacing than if a change of style occurs after a given paragraph.
Does Writer offer this type of spacing option?
UPDATE - Apache Office does not support this feature, LibreOffice does. Because this is such an important feature for the work I do, it appears I will be better off with LibreOffice. I am testing it now!
