. because as I understand it; a key code to  function can be 
created for nearly any desired function?

Go to "View >
 Non-Printer Characters".  This will show the
breaks, etc.
Position the cursor within a
 paragraph or select (highlight) desired
Open "Format >
 Paragraph" and go to the "Indents & Spacing
You can view and

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 -- 
nothing works.

Can you please help me?

   Thank you

What I do, is the
When I have imported
 a file from MSOffice and get problems like you 

 describing, I copy (Ctrl-C) the problematic paragraph,
 delete the
 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

I found
 my documents (LO) accumulated a pile of rubbish, styles,
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
 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.
 Ctr-Shift-Alt-V (yes, a four
 key "shortcut") do the same than Paste 
 special → Without formatting so it gives you
 a "clean" text ;)
