without 'chapters'

hi, folks, just started this process.

 

i have open office now with mac and would like to show my book two line spaces between 'chapters' - that's all. the story skips around a lot between characters and locations and some may only be a couple of short paragraphs. there might be 100 or so 'chapters', if i have to make them all chapters.

 

if i can't use two blank lines would i have to use a number or text etc.? what am i missing?

 

any suggestions?

 

thanks

    Hi Art,

     

    Perhaps there is an equivalent in Open Office to the following, which I normally do in Word.

     

    Create a new Style with a space of 18 or 24 before.

     

    Highlight the text that requires the extra spacing and and assign the style. This will preserve the formatting no matter what the platform.

    If these are scene changes in the same chapter, perhaps you could use the standard asterisks, centered.

    Or insert a symbol or fleuron if you want to be fancy

  • I think the question is actually whether a header-styled text (chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3) is required in the file, since the eBook formatting can complain if you don't have obvious chapters in your file.

    Scyoni, he can get away with making only the title and the word Copyright Heading 1.
