How to add multiple blank / empty paragraphs?

Hey Community.

I wonder if there’s a way to increase the space between paragraphs.
In the editor, even If I separate each line with more than one paragraph, in the post there’s only one line of blank space separating them.

The only way of doing this…
[color=#fffff].[/color]
[color=#fffff].[/color]
[color=#fffff].[/color]
[color=#fffff].[/color]
[color=#fffff].[/color]

Is using dots and coloring them of white with a plugin.

Is there a way to do this by default?

Thanks

You can use backslashes to add line breaks (commonmark spec). For example:






There’s a massive gap here :arrow_double_up:

The markdown for that was:

Hi David,
a minor comment from my side, I used the mardown you suggested on my platform and I noticed some weird behaviour for me. I’m not sure this is a bug, or only a limitation of commonmark?

When the last backslash isn’t followed by regular text in the line right after, the last backslash \ is shown instead of a rendered empty line. (see example below)

It happens when the last backslash…

…is followed by an empty line (or a line with two empty spaces) before subsequent text starts

\

subsequent text

…is followed by blockquotes

\

text in a blockquote

It doesn’t happen when followed by regular text


regular text

Here's the text/code I used

\
\
...is followed by blockquotes
\
\
> text

Any ideas why this is the case?

You can also use html, e.g.
