Based on your requirement, we suspect that you want to add spacing between the two lines of the text. But currently, we don't have the support or an immediate plan to implement this.  Could you please confirm if this is your requirement? If not, share more details to check further at our end.

That's right. Want to change spacing between the lines.

That's because when typing inside the rich edit control, it uses a different line spacing compared to leading an existing html block into the rich edit control. In both cases the line spacing are different.

We have created a sample based on loads the HTML text when the control is loaded. After the control has loaded, type text into the rich text editor control. we were unable to reproduce the reported issue. It is working fine . And the sample and video can be downloaded from the below link.

You are right. It is not an issue. 

But still we would like to have a way to adjust the line spacing as many customers want it. Or some way of inserting a custom style sheet would be even more better so that we can modify behaviors of <p> and other blocks.

We have analyzed your requirement “Provide support for Line spacing with RichTextEditor control” and at present, we do not have support for this. However, we have added it to our feature request list for this and do not have any immediate plans to implement this feature. We will let you know once the feature is implemented.  

The status of this feature can be tracked through our Feature Management System,
