ParagraphSpacing

FilledSmallSquare ParagraphSpacing is an option for Cell, StyleBox and StyleForm which specifies how much extra space to leave between successive paragraphs of text.

FilledSmallSquare ParagraphSpacing->c, 0 leaves an extra space of c times the height of the font in the paragraph.

FilledSmallSquare ParagraphSpacing->0, n leaves an extra space of exactly n printer's points.

FilledSmallSquare ParagraphSpacing->c, n leaves an extra space of c times the height of the font plus n printer's points.

FilledSmallSquare Paragraph breaks are taken to occur whenever an explicit Return character appears in a block of text.

FilledSmallSquare ParagraphSpacing is added to LineSpacing to determine spacing between paragraphs.

FilledSmallSquare A typical default setting is ParagraphSpacing->{0, 0}.

FilledSmallSquare ParagraphSpacing applies only to ordinary text, not Mathematica expressions.

FilledSmallSquare Extra space specified by ParagraphSpacing is inserted before the first line of each paragraph. No extra space is inserted if the paragraph is at the beginning of a cell or a string.
