Please refer to 01 Screen Shot and 02 Screen Shot, attached.
I have an author's quotation made up of 3 small paragraphs. In 01 I used my paragraph style for quotations. However, I don't want a blank line between the paragraphs so I used a soft return and got what is shown in 02, which is not what I want. The paragraph style has justification set to Left Justify.
How do I modify the style to eliminate the 3 words spreading out over the whole line?
Thanks in advance.
You could just use left align on your text or use this setting in your paragraph style (and keep the paragraphs separate):
Hi @Michael J B:
Check the spacing values for the quote paragraphs. Note that you are using a baseline grid, so the spacing value (probably space below) will need to be set to 0 for the next paragraph to align to the next grid line.
If you do not want to spread the words, don't use shift-return. work with 2 paragraph styles and use return.
You have the paragraph style set to Justify All Lines
You need to choose the other one - Justify with last line aligned left
In this case, it would make no difference. As the forced return will stretch all words to justify this line.
100% correct - I realised my error after posting.
Thanks for clarifying.
