Hi @MorganBAdmin,

You can find more information about adjusting line spacing in text blocks in the following guide:

I want to get Margaret Hardy's name all on one line. (See first image.) However, if I just press return to put her first name with her last name, the space in between the two lines is quite large (see second image.) Is there a piece of code I can put in there to make the line height more how it was before when the name was split?

You can introduce a line break rather than a paragraph break in your text if you hold the shift key when pressing return.

Be aware that this line break will still be there when you view on a screen that is narrower, so you will end up with a situation where the name "Devin Thomas" will make the first line too long and break just the last name onto a new line on it's own, which may not be the look you are after.
