I have recently been having problems with line spacing and not sure why. When I go to this page down near the bottom above the map, when I use the visual editor it spaces one space between each line (for example address
I have always just double spaced and it works out fine. But suddenly it does not. Looks fine in the visual editor but when I publish there is now spacing between the lines. Not sure what is causing that.GeneratePress 2.1.3GP Premium 1.7.1August 20, 2018 at 7:54 pm #655117LeoStaffCustomer SupportAugust 21, 2018 at 5:18 am #655510Cristo Rey
Yes I still do…in the visual editor, but the published page has no spaces. BTW, this is something that has begun happening in just the last few weeks…not sure what might have changed.August 21, 2018 at 9:14 am #655890LeoStaffCustomer Support
Nothing has changed from GP in regarding to that aspect 🙂
Maybe try this for double space?

No I realize GP has not changed….maybe I did not describe my problem properly, but previously all I had to do was hit enter twice and it creates a line space. Now that no longer happens….not sure if it is in my settings or where, but driving me crazy. I don’t want to double space as a rule, and just want to be able to hit enter twice like I did before.August 21, 2018 at 3:43 pm #656197LeoStaffCustomer Support
Sorry I’m not sure what you used to do and why it isn’t working anymore. GP just uses the standard WordPress editor.
The link I provided isn’t a rule that apply to all sentences – only the ones that have the certain class added to it. It’s actually a better method than hitting Enter twice.August 21, 2018 at 7:05 pm #656306Cristo Rey
Well, whatever is happening did not use to, so I will have to try to find out what has changed.August 22, 2018 at 8:47 am #656948LeoStaffCustomer SupportAugust 22, 2018 at 9:39 am #656993Cristo Rey
Not practical…..adding custom css each time I need to double space is not what I want to do. I would still like to know what changed. This page done earlier, double spacing is fine if I hit enter twice.August 22, 2018 at 10:08 am #657021LeoStaffCustomer Support
The custom CSS only needs to be added once.
You are using
<p>tag in the page that’s working and the space below is just the bottom margin that comes with the
Whereas the page that’s not working is wrapped with
<div>instead and there isn’t margin bottom:

The thing is, I am not doing any coding at all. Just using the visual editor. I stay away from code, which is why I use WP and GP.August 22, 2018 at 2:41 pm #657261LeoStaffCustomer SupportAugust 22, 2018 at 2:49 pm #657270Cristo Rey
Actually I do use paragraph, and this is what I get in the published version (bottom of the page, just above the map). Visual editor shows spacing, end result does not have it.August 22, 2018 at 3:33 pm #657283LeoStaffCustomer Support
Hmm can you try re-adding those lines and make sure paragraph is used?
I can see paragraphs working in lines above:
And it worked as expected when I did this test on my install:

Well, I guess it will remain a mystery….it still doesn’t space properly when I do it, and probably not worth spending too much time on it.
I just added a new page here and did the same thing at the bottom and it worked out fine.
So I will have to work around it on the previous page…unless it happens again!
Thanks for your help, Leo.
