I do have 'block outline' specified as next style. So something else is happening.

Probably you and Philip Jackson are right that the "correct" thing is to have two different styles.

I've also experimented with including space beneath the paragraph in the style def and then using the soft return (shift-return) option when I didn't want the extra space.

Still, it would be most convenient if 'two enters' didn't kick me out of the style. The other work-arounds all involve extra steps, especially when I want the flexibility within a given document.

Thanks for the inputs.

When editing a paragraph style, in the 'Organizer' tab you can specify 'Next style'. Is that set to 
be your custom 'block outline' style? I don't really understand why two Enters would kick you out 
if one doesn't.

A style purist would say that you should define a separate style with greater spacing, rather than 
using blank paragraphs.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] double-spacing within an outline

I have a custom outline style that I call 'block outline' because it
doesn't use bullets or alphanumerics to head the different levels.

It's set to single space. But there are times I want to double
space--e.g., to make a greater break between "paragraphs" at a given
outline level. But when I hit enter/return twice I get kicked out of my
custom outline style.

Is this a "feature" of LO Writer outlining or is there some setting that
will keep me in the current outline style when I add an extra line
spacing? (The only thing that works now is to single space, add some new
text, and then go to the start of that "paragraph" and hit enter/return

Using Ubuntu 20.04 and LO on Dell XPS.
