Paragraph settings...

Hello I tried to convert a pdf to an epub using Sigil, and the result was an ebook with double line spacing. I can't find how to change the line spacing within Sigil, to make it single line spacing.

Why would you do that? Sigil's not a PDF converter.

Paragraph settings are controlled through CSS.

Code:
p {
   margin: 0;
   text-indent: 1.2em
}
should get things jump-started.

How did you go about this conversion?
Look at a chapter in Code View. Can you see what's causing the spacing? Are there extra <p> tags or something?
