In LibreOffice Writer I would like similar spacing mechanism as in MS Office Word.
If I set both above and below spacing of a paragraph, Writer will add them, when 2 paragraph meets, but Word only displays the bigger (I want this).
See the following example:
Line1 (above: 0 pt, below: 0 pt) Line2 (above: 36 pt, below: 24 pt) Line3 (above: 36 pt, below: 24 pt) Line4 (above: 0 pt, below: 0 pt)
Both 24 pt and 36 pt are applied, so 60 pt spacing is displayed.
Line1 (before: 0 pt, after: 0 pt) Line2 (before: 36 pt, after: 24 pt) Line3 (before: 36 pt, after: 24 pt) Line4 (before: 0 pt, after: 0 pt)
Between Line2 and Line3 only the bigger (36 pt) is applied, which I want.
I know, there is a checkbox “Don’t add space between paragraphs of the same style”, but does not any spacing and works only between the same paragraphs.
I am using LibreOffice 4.3on Ubuntu 12.04.
