How does one insert a line break between paragraph line and a heading line immediately below it? e.g. lines 3 and 4 or especially lines 9 and 10

Why is there greater padding below a heading than above it?

What if one does not wish to use `----`?

This problem has existed since before the recent UI refresh and now it's worse!
