I just read this thread, which appears to be related, but my question is actually more simple: Question on Text Spacing when making a NEW post
When I type a post from scratch, like I am doing now, the formatting seems to be ok. But on my own board, when I paste a series of paragraphs from notepad (Kate, I am in Linux, using Chrome) or from Libreoffice writer, it all looks fine when I paste. Everything is formatted correctly. BUT when I then hit submit, I find that every sentence in every paragraph is jammed together without any line breaks whatsoever. Even when I go back in and edit, it looks fine. If I add new hard returns to try to separate the paragraphs, it looks fine, but then all goes away when I hit submit.
I am really at my wits end as to why this works when I type manually but not when i paste from a text editor. I have lived with this for months, going back and putting <br> code in to make it look right, but I really need to figure this out. Can anyone suggest a way around this?
EDIT: Yep, just as I suspected, I typed this manually, hit Submit, and it looks great.
EDIT2- I have played with cutting and pasting what I just wrote into Libreoffice, then pasted it back here, and the formatting seems to work fine. Is it possible that some sites are set up differently than others? Or that I have failed to install some kind of formatting engine on my particular site? I am beginning to think there may be some kind of setting controls that are set diffently on this help forum than on my site.
EDIT3 - Same problem in both Chrome and Firefox
