I lose paragraph spacing in epub>docx Calibre conversion

I'm doing a Createpace paperback. My polished manuscript is in epub. So I converted the epub to docx (with intentions of editing the docx) before converting the docx into a pdf. But when I convert the epub to docx in Calibre I lose all the paragraph spacing. Is there a way to keep the paragraph spacing?

Thanks.

By paragraph spacing, do you mean spaces between the paragraphs? I hope not.

Greg - try opening the epub in the calibre ebook reader and hitting the Print button. That will create a PDF from the epub. Even if that's not entirely satisfactory, you may not need to round trip through DOCX and Word, you can use calibre to convert the EPUB to PDF directly.

Thanks, Red, but I have to edit in the .docx before converting it to pdf.

I have to re-size it to 5"X8", which is the size of the paperback and add page numbers and just all around make sure everything is where it's supposed to be.

Thanks Red. Everything got straightened out when in LibreOffice I set the paragraph indents. (The line spacing and everything looks right now.)
