Spaces

When I write in an articel and try to use two spaces to separate paragraphs (to create a better break between subject matter) it always seems to only show one space.

How can I force the browser to leave a bigger space between such sections?

Any help is appreciated  :>)

You can add this code:    You have to add it in html, not normal mode. (It is called the 'non-breaking space' entity)

If you don't feel comfortable in html mode, create a variable called Spaces.  Put   in the variable.  If you want 2 spaces, put two of that sequence in the variable. 

Wherever you want to force that many spaces just insert {$.Spaces$} in your article.

HTML will always reduce spaces down to one space by default.

I think you want two line breaks like this:


right? I think you can use CTRL + ENTER or SHIFT + ENTER to force a line break rather than a paragraph.

I originally misunderstood.  You can put this in your head section (in your template):

<style type="text/css">
p {margin-bottom: 2em;}
</style>

This will give a margin of 2 lines (approximately) below each paragraph.

I thought of this too, but wasn't sure if he wanted two line breaks after EVERY paragraph or just a few....

Wanted it done in just a few paragraphs. To split up sections of paragraphs but where a horizontal line would not look good.

Although it is good to know how to have spaces throughout do it throughout also.

Cntrl + Enter does put a line space in Word

Whoops - no Control + Enter puts in a section break in Word.
