ParagraphSpacing

ParagraphSpacing
is an option for Cell, StyleBox and Style which specifies how much extra space to leave between successive paragraphs of text.
  • ParagraphSpacing->{c, 0} leaves an extra space of c times the height of the font in the paragraph.
  • ParagraphSpacing->{c, n} leaves an extra space of c times the height of the font plus n printer's points.
  • Paragraph breaks are taken to occur whenever an explicit newline character appears in a block of text.
  • 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.
