How can I change or reduce the line spacing to single in a "multiple lines of text" column in a list? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We keep many logs in a simple list format. One of the columns requires a description using the "multiple lines of text" default column. Sometimes the person making the entry needs to complete about 20-30 lines of text. Users are requesting we reduce the amount of space advanced between lines to save space and be more concise. Is there a way to reduce the line spacing for the column entries to single spacing without code?

  • We determined that the site column settings were incorrect for allowing single spacing, we changed the site column setting from "Enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks)" to  "Rich text (Bold, italics, text alignment, hyperlinks)" and it is now keeping the text in single spaced lines.

      <label for="onetidRichText">Specify the type of text to allow:</label> 
    <input id="onetidRichTextPlain" name="RichText" title="Plain text" type="radio" value="PLAIN" /> <label for="onetidRichTextPlain">Plain text   </label>
    <input id="onetidRichTextCompatible" name="RichText" title="Rich text (Bold, italics, text alignment, hyperlinks)" type="radio" value="COMPATIBLE" /> <label for="onetidRichTextCompatible">Rich text (Bold, italics, text alignment, hyperlinks)</label>
    <input id="onetidRichTextFullHtml" name="RichText" title="Enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks)" type="radio" value="FullHtml" /> <label for="onetidRichTextFullHtml">Enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks)</label>
