How to set line spacing in Confluence?


How to set line spacing in confluence

2 answers

Shift + Enter only works when you are actively typing line-by-line.  Having to remember to do that every time is super annoying.  But if you decide to paste the contents of a paragraph(like from and email) then you have to go back and fix all the double spacing....this is beyond annoying.  When single line spacing isn't the default, like every other editor in the world, is just ridiculous.  At least give us a formatting option or something.

You can just press Shift + Enter.
Which also works in these comment boxes! 

Alternatively, there is the "No Format" Macro which does this by default but then you will naturally lose all formatting for any text within this space. 

Hope this helps!

Additionally there doesn't appear to be a way to change the settings of line spacing defaults.

Isn't Shift + Enter simply adding a line between lines?

That's quite different from line spacing. Not to mention I have to do it every-single-line...

Yes this is not a sustainable solution. Please add a setting per document.

I concur.  you can simply swap Enter and Shift+Enter as Enter for a single line is the natural key across virtually all programs.  then for those users who it has become natural, they can go to the settings and apply the swap.  call your setting oneLineShift = false by default

@Marcus Tang, you might want to be careful about using unprofessional language on a public forum.

Anyone semi-technical working for your employer would be able to create a login, and check how you're behaving, in here.

You don't have to be a vehicle driver deliberately splash-soaking a pedestrian (this actually happened) to be found out and disciplined, or even fired (that also actually happened).
