There may be 3 things to consider here.
1. With the computer (Libre Office) the paragraph can have space attached before or after or both that looks like a blank line. Right click in the test and click on Paragraph.... and in the indents and spacing tab this can be adjusted. 2. A normal press of enter starts a new paragraph on a new line, this will add any spacing from above. 3. Pressing shift+enter will move the cursor to the beginning of a new line but still being within the same paragraph and this doesn't introduce the spacing mentioned in 1.

               [before starting to type - or at any time - you just set the
margins and these machines 'know' what's what  ;-)]

        If you wish to start a new paragraph, you then either hit 'enter';
               (if you wish a blank line left between paragraphs)
            or click the 'tab' key to indent a set amount of spaces;
               [the tab can be set to any amount you desire]
             or you could just hit the space key a certain number of times

        Hoping this helps,

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Editing new line when pressing enter

  I am an old fashioned guy that remembers the days when typewriters were
used on a regular basis. I want to know how to get to a new line w/press
enter w/out getting another one added on as well. I have also discovered
that if I copy and paste an amount of text from another source it will keep
the extra line adding feature into my document I am currently working on.
The only way I have found how to remove it is just type all the stuff I want
new added instead of copying it from somewhere else. Is there an easier way
to do this? Thanks for any help you can give.  dworldjumper
