    How do I remove the double space within my text box?

    Asked by Chrissybright on August 29, 2014 at 10:45 AM

    I want to start a new line in my text box, however, I automatically get a double space when hitting enter - how do I remove the automatic double space?  I don't want there to be extra space between the first line of text and the second line of text.

    I'm actually talking about the text that I created in the top part of the form, specifically where the service times are listed and the address. 

    I want the service times to be single spaced, not double spaced.  Every time I hit enter on my computer, it automatically skips a space/line - how do I change this so that it does not skip a line? 

    I use this for a phone app and want to eliminate as much white space as possible.

    Here is my form:


    I tried to do a screenshot on my surface, but can't get it to work, sorry.

    Instead of hitting "enter" hit "shitft" + "enter" for a single space.  If this is not what you were looking for, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can find.
