Hi, how do I create additional space (automatically) after each line in my paragraph without messing up the layout? I tried forcing spaces (clicking enter) after each line in my paragraph while writing in wordpress/site content but when I go to preview it on my page (Elementor) it messes up the spaces. I waste time going back to correct and I'm forced to keep it with no spaces between lines. Help please. Thank you.

Hi, if you are using Elementor plugin you need edit pages / posts in Elementor editor, from your WordPress sites back office. Open a new page or post, select page attributes as Canvas or Full Width (right sidebar). Then click option to edit in Elementor.

You cannot do it from site content publish then edit. It would be a post in either a classic or block editor. which does not work.

Hope that makes sense?

Thanks Abie. So to clarify, I write the initial post in Site Content which is step 1. If I want to go back and edit after the initial 'publish' then this must be done in 'edit with Elementor' (to avoid frustration) as opposed to tweaking anything in wordpress or going back to the original write up in site content. Correct?

You can write in site content if you want, however NOT publish to your WordPress.

Then you would open a page / post in your WordPress sites back office and copy paste in Elementor editor following above instructions.

If you publish from site content, then you CAN'T use Elementor, you'd have to work with either a Classic or Block editor.

The way I would do it is open a page / post in my WordPress and write content directly in Elementor editor. Downside is when my post get indexed, I won't get notified as the case when you publish from site content but I can live with that. There's other ways to submit and check indexing.

Thanks Abie. That seems clear. I think as a beginner I will need to continue writing in site content to keep consistency and know when a post gets indexed. All I want is to create additional spacing between each line to be more attractive and easier for the reader. Most other posts I read have good spacing created. Too bad Site Content doesn't copy over exactly the same into Elementor.
Is Classic/Block editor an additional plugin? I need to research this.

I always write in site content and then publish. Then I go back into Wordpress and add images there instead.

I have noticed that the spaces do become different in WP than when it was in site content. I just go back and forth between that and my actual site post to see what it looks like and work with it from there.

Sometimes the spaces are good and sometimes I need like ten spaces to create just one on the site post. It can be frustrating but once you realize what it does it gets easier to fix it.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Angela. Yes, I spent extra time this morning and I agree it can get frustrating.

I haven´t got any answers to the reason why this happens. I write in MS Word, before I paste it into Grammarly for language, spelling and grammar check and then copy and past to Site Content and then publish it.

It might seem time-consuming, but it works great for me. I haven't started using Elementor yet. I just fiddle around with it on a website I have for testing functionalities out.

Thank you for your tip Roy.

Roy, from your experience do you find Grammarly to catch more or make more recommendation then the in-house spell check/grammer/punctuation function here on WA? I'm still just a few weeks in. Thanks

It thinks the in-house tool is very good, but Grammarly excels in giving you suggestions for other wording and language according to the type of content you are writing. It has more features than the in-house one. It is also great for checking for plagiarism.

Michael, I dont create content in word press but in Site content mainly because of that frustrated reason you asked

Is it easier for you to do it there?

Thanks Simone. I do write it in Site Content. I guess my problem may have risen when I went to edit this morning and I edited with Wordpress which may have caused this. I'm retracing my steps. Again, clumsy beginner syndrome. lol. I'll keep it in mind to make edits back in Site Content.
