In Libre Writer 126.96.36.199, I wanted to change the plain text to single

1. Select the paragraph and then go to Format, Paragraph, Indents &
Spacing tab, Line Spacing.
2. Right click to open the context menu > Line Spacing.
How do I truly secure single spacing?
One possibility is that your "lines" here are not lines of a single
continuous paragraph but actually separate paragraphs or explicitly
separate lines. Remember that in any word processor a paragraph is
however much text is separated by pressing Enter, not necessarily
what you see as a paragraph. These paragraphs may have vertical
spacing set between paragraphs, either locally for the paragraphs or
in their paragraph style, or there may be empty paragraphs between
each of your visible paragraphs (as by pressing Enter twice in
succession). Or you may have double explicit line breaks between each
line (as by pressing Shift+Enter twice in succession). Situations
like this can easily arise if you paste material in from elsewhere.
Click the Non-printing Characters button in the Standard toolbar (or
use Ctrl+F10) to toggle the display of end-of-line and
end-of-paragraph markers and see what is happening.
Other possibilities are that the text is in either a section or a
table cell and that these have been protected by the author. But that
doesn't fit your description, since in those cases the menu items you
describe should either be greyed out or missing.
I trust this helps.
