I am generating a Microsoft HTML Help file (CHM).  When I am editing it, it looks like the following:

When I preview or Generate it is generating as:

Why am I losing the spacing that I have entered?

Ok, that's the latest version of RH2022 right now. How are those lines added in the Authoring panel? Are they hard returns or just line feeds? Have you checked to see what style is applied to the text and blank lines? You want to make sure they are defined and present in the CSS applied to the HTML.

I actually imported from Robohelp 19 classic.  In that version they were just added by hitting enter.  I have never really used the CSS before.  It sounds like something I may need to start looking at.  My confusion is it looks good when editing.  It is just when I generate the chm that it excludes that spacing.

Imported or upgraded the RH2019 Classic project? Have you tried (as a test) generating HTML5 output to see how the blank lines translate to that?
