Spacing between Paragraphs

How can I get spaces between paragraphs for course content?

I hit enter (obviously), but when I view the final result, paragraphs are often touching each other.

Sometimes I would like to have two or more lines between paragraphs to separate things more obviously.

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered :)

    Hi @Yeslech,

    Instead of (or in addition to) hitting enter, try using shift-enter. My guess is that enter wraps in paragraph tags, and any empty ones (so <p></p>) ends up getting removed. Shift-enter should insert line breaks (ie: <br> tags) which forces blank spaces between lines.

    Thanks for reaching out to the Brightspace Community.

    I'm curious about what content templates you are using. Are they HTML templates?

    Shift-enter has resolved the issue!!! I'm so relieved!

    Thanks Jonathan and Julie for your quick replies :)
