Hi, I have a poem in my Hub-in-progress, and the layout makes every returned line make a space for a paragraph. I don't want this for my poem. I think I saw other poetry that wasn't laid out like this. How do I make it all single-spaced? Thanks.
You also might want to try the new editor to see if that helps.
To use the new editor. Go to "my profile", select "edit profile", change the text editor to "Version 3" and then hit "Save Changes".
This might help. You can also use one of the heading formats instead of the paragraph. Usually, you just have to play around with it.
*Laughs* Well thats simple to fix! Just hold Shift while you hit return and it won't make the big gap!
(I wish all questions where this easy)
Thanks, everybody. I just tried a number of things, on your advice. I switched to Version 3 first. I don't know whether that made a difference or not, except that it added "preformatted" to the choices, which was not at all what I needed. I tried shift enter, and at first it looked like it would work changing every line ending that way by hand, but it kept sending me back to the beginning of the box when I tried erasing the space. So then I marked it and tried the other forms and felt like Heading 2 was just right for what I wanted. Looks good.

I've been publishing poetry on Triond because their format is more conducive to that type of short posting. But I decided to give HP a shot because I like it better and I get a lot more visitors here. I tried to...
