Problem # 1 (which i do not know how to solve)...
When I type in text, then hit (hard) return, it jumps down MORE THAN to the "next " line. It leaves too big a space. It only leaves the right amouont of space (between lines) when it's a soft (or 'forced') return. WHY is that? why can't it behave like every other text editor on earth and (merely) put me on the next 'line' down when I hit return, instead of jumping down MORE THAN THAT?!?

Instead of this (what I should get)...

Line #1 blah. blah
(then) line #2 blah, blah

Here's what I do get (annoyingly)...

Line #1 blah. blah

(then) line #2 blah, blah

>>> WHY!?!? --- and HOW do I FIX this?!?

Problem #2 (which I do know how to fix)...

The text editor assumes (default) I want my test to be in (the color) GREY!

WHY?!?

Who -- or what % of people -- wants their text to be GREY (not black)?!?
Shouldn't the default setting be BLACK?!?

Is there a way to get the default setting to be black (so i don't always have to change the color every time I insert new text? (most annoying).

Thanks!

I Believe the default text colour is dependant on the style you choose

I'm talking about the text color you get when you don't chose any "style" -- the default setting.

Hi Timothy

You ask a couple of good questions.

1) Line spacing:

Unfortunately browser based text editors are a bit different to desktop software you may be used to in that your browser decides how to handle a hard return. Some browsers insert a single line and some add a double line.

To change this: you can hit the Shift-Enter keys together (Firefox and Internet Explorer) or Ctrl-Enter (Safari) when you want to go to the next single line.

2) Default font color

John is right that the default color of the text is determined by the style or template you are using. My guess is that the template designer selected grey for the style (template) you are using. Your only option to change this would be to select another style (template) that has black as the default font color.
