I see in Writer 220.127.116.11 under Paragraph you can change the spacing settings.
Line spacing is both a paragraph and a paragraph style property.
I've experimented with this without reaching my objective of
changing the spacing from Single to something greater than single
but less than 1.5.
Note that you are here presumably meaning proportions: by "1.5" you
mean 50% more spacing than standard.
My goal is to create more space than single space between certain
(but not all) lines of text throughput the document but I'm not sure
how that can best (and easily) be done.
You may be certain about which lines you mean, but as yet no-one else
is! How you do this might depend on exactly how these lines are defined.
I've tried highlighting just the lines of text I want changed and
then right clicking to Paragraph and then choosing At least 1.25 and
it changes *all* the text in all the lines in the document. Same was
true using Fixed and Proportional.
First, note that line spacing of "At least" refers to a distance, not
a proportion, so "1.25" here would (unlike above) not mean 25% more
than standard but 1.25 in whatever is your chosen measurement unit -
centimetres, inches, or whatever. If you want 25% more than
standard, choose Proportional and 125% instead.
If this change affects all your text, then your entire document must
be in one paragraph. Divide your document into paragraphs (using
Enter) and apply this change to the relevant paragraphs. Note that
if you right-click and select Edit Paragraph Style... instead of
Paragraph... you will affect all paragraphs in the same style as the
current paragraph - and that may well include all your text in a
simple but multi-paragraph document.
I'd appreciate your insight about how to change spacing text for
just certain lines of text.
Divide your document so that the text that needs extra spacing is in
separate paragraphs. Either set the line spacing for these
paragraphs to a larger value or - better still - create a paragraph
style with extra line spacing and apply this style to the relevant paragraphs.
I trust this helps.
