I seem to consistently get a line spacing anomaly,

At the start of a document the lines space normally. But under the same conditions, in the last part of it the lines are all crammed together.

And they stay that way when I put it into/out of an ebook program.

I noticed just recently that, on one document at least, the scrunch started on a chapter heading. I don't remember if it was before or after adding the H1 attribs.

Am I the only one getting this?

Can you upload a sample at for instance www.mediafire.com?

I don't have a subscription to such a place, but here's a small jpg that shows how it looks.

That is strange, I have never had mine do that. I will sometimes get a visual anomaly when I have a lot running, but saving, closing and re-opening fixes it...and that is usually characters not showing up correctly. It would help if you could make a test page that was not the castle book you are working on and upload it for us to look at and see what is going on.

Screen shots don't help, I'm afraid. You can sign up at the new forum (see my sig for the link) and upload your file there. Make sure to post a link in this topic though.

I have nothing but Castle stuff.

I think I have figured out the problem. At least I know how to fix it.

At least some of you know what fanfics are. The documents I build are chapters from a Castle fanfic operation. Each chapter comes from the same series, but I have seen variations from one chapter to another - not least of which is loading extra top and bottom text box lines into OO.

Sometimes I get centered text on a download, even when the onscreen copy was left aligned, then when I download it again it comes through left aligned. Making sure to sneak up on the last character and never highlight past that seems to guarantee a proper download.

I can only guess that some attributes vary, more specifically the line spacing attributes, given that the changes go by chapters, not position in the document as I previously thought.

I went through this one to be sure there were no extra CR's, highlighted the entire document and set it to one line spacing value. That works.

I'm not sure if it is the variation from one author upload to the next or the freaky system I get them from. Apparently very old software. They must have attributes immediately adjacent to the end of text.
