Subject Re: A missing feature: don't add space between same-style paragraphs
Date Sat, 03 Mar 2012 09:47:58 GMT
Quoted from Dan:
     Tools -> Options -> Writer -> Compatability But 
remember that this only applies to the document
     that is open when you make the changes.

Unfortunately, that only works when you save your work in MS Word 
format, it doesn't affect your odt at all.
The typical way to do this kind of thing in Writer is as described in - 
you have to use three styles, one for the first paragraph in a series 
with space above, one for the last one with space below, and one for the 
paragraphs in between with no spacibng above and below. While that 
certainly works, it's not very obvious for somebody just starting with 
styles, and may people would consider it as arduous.
The idea suggested by Eyla is that you can set spacing in the style and 
that the spacing is suppressed between paragraphs formatted with the 
same style, so that you effectively only need one style instead of three.
