I'm simply trying to set before and after paragraph spacing to a style that I'm trying to create in RH 2022.  Can someone point me in the right direction?  I don't seem to be finding much online about this?  I am new to Robohelp but I have found information regarding how to do this in Classic version.  Please help.

Sorry for having misread your question. You can do what asked. You just need use the css editor. Here I have shown how to add extra spacing after but I could also have added spacing before. I have used point units of measurement but you can use any valid unit such as pixels.

I don't have a great background in html (haven't really had to until now, but I can write macros in Word, so I'm familiar enough the concept).  How does output know how to space between paragraphs (it has to be following some "rule" or guideline, I would think?  What's the conversion chart?  In other words, If I am wanting 14 pt before and 14 pt after, what is the number (if that question makes any sense).  I'm assuming I would need to add a line of code of some sort into the css for said style.  That's how I would get a macro in Word to behave a certain way (using vba editor, I would make the change or add a line of code saying what I needed it to do.  I may be completely off, though.  I don't even think I know what I know anymore.  The Classic version seemed to be much eaiser to understand (maybe lower level stuff vs what I find to be really inefficient and harder than necessary in the new UI).  Thank you for answering my 1st question, though, as to whether it can be done or not.

Ahhh.  Well, I feel kind of silly now.  I was looking for the words Before and After.  Thank you for getting me to the right place as I was not making that connection (obviously).  I appreciate the help.  I have your website bookmarked and I look at it multiple times a day.

I would also recommend going through some of the CSS tutorial on W3schools to get used to the terminology. Adobe has (mostly) used the css terms for their stylesheets. As it's a different paradigm to Word, being familiar with how it works in code can help you figure out what to look at in Robohelp too.
