PAGES Single spaced quote within double spaced document impossible!?

Hello,

I am writing a paper now and I am about to go crazy. My whole document is double spaced and I just inserted a quote which is fairly long so I would like to single space just the quote. When I go into inspector to change just the quote spacing it changes the whole document to single spacing, not just the selected quote.

Hopefully you guys will be able to help me out!

Regards,
Mark

Uhm, you're doing something wrong.

I just set my document to double spacing (by the menubar pulldown on the right, just to the right of the justification buttons) and then I selected some text, and set that text using that same pulldown, to 1, and it's fine.

I tried that too, but I had the same problem as the OP, though I remember it worked before (a year ago or so).

edit: you do have to have the quote on a new line or all of the previous paragraph will be set to the same line spacing. Usually you would have the quote on a line by itself anyway according to what you are trying to do.
Hmm, now it works for me too. Strange.

Open a new document and test it out there. Not sure what you're doing wrong...

Thanks!

Thanks everyone! It looks like you guys helped me out! The problem was that I was trying to keep the quote within the same paragraph thus making the whole paragraph single spaced. I put the quote on a new line and then single spaced it with ease. Thank again!
