Can you please provide the option to have single-spaced text that is not within a paragraph in the text for the Guided Tour?  I want to list addresses, phone numbers, lat/lon locations, websites, and have poems in the text of the guided tour, but every time I hit "enter" at the end of a line, the text is double spaced.  This looks bad and prevents me from using the tour option, which I otherwise love.  Alternatively, using the formatted text from the popups in a webmap, or providing the ability to edit the text using html, would be a fantastic option.


Hi Sara,

You are correct in that each "enter" results in a double space.  Alas, there doesn't seem to be a work-around at the moment.  However, the ability to single space between lines has been added as a future enhancement.

Thanks for your feedback!

Tip for double space!

Enter one dot and chance the colour into the back grond colour.

You will see double space! 

Have fun, Jaap

The ability to use single-spaced text (using SHIFT+ENTER) was added in yesterday's update to ArcGIS StoryMaps.

That's fantastic news!  Thank you!
