I found my documents (LO) accumulated a pile of rubbish, styles, etc.
from documents I import from. Copy/pasting from word docs copies the
styles into the LO doc.
When I merge content from multiple documents (.doc, .docx, .odt, PDFs)
into my documents I use an intermediary document to cleanse the
copy/pasted content and apply the styles I want before copy/pasting
again into my final document and this way my final document only has the
look and styles I want.
Thank you Brian, Bruce and Erik for your excellent advice on how to fix
line spacing, and I don't know how in a billion kazillion years that I
could ever possibly thank you!

I’m using LibreOffice Writer to write a novel and the line-spacing is all
messed up. Single, 1.5, double-spacing all on the same page.
I’ve tried Format-spacing, Windows-paragraph and everything else -- but
Can you please help me?
What I do, is the following:
When I have imported a file from MSOffice and get problems like you are
describing, I copy (Ctrl-C) the problematic paragraph, delete the
problematic paragraph, make a new one with the desired paragraph style en
paste the text with Ctrl-Shif-Alt-V. This way of pasting deletes all
formatting from the text and accepts the style of the chosen paragraph.
Later I delete al superfluous Windows styles that encumber the document.
I hope this helps; good luck.
