I experience this issue frequently in InDesign; the last line in a paragraph or in this example, a bulleted list, has extra spacing between lines. Usually when I hit return the last line will suck up, but when I apply a new paragraph style is reverts to the leading space.
Does anyone now why and how I can resolve?
This is usaully an indicator that the leading applied to the paragraph return is larger than that applied to the text. Could be a local overrride to the style, perhaps.
If you show hidden characters and select the return you should be able to see this.
I'll try this solution out, thank you. I also noticed in preferences under the type tab there is "apply leading to the entire paragraph" option. I wonder why this isn't on by default.
Make sure your paragraph styles don't use auto leading--set it to an absolute number.

To accommodate inline graphics, superscripts. subscripts. etc, but I agree that most users would benefit from it on as a default. And that's all you need to enable to prevent this from happening again.
