@freemo Is it possible to initiate a format change? If so, how?
.
.
I tend to write and think in paragraphs, but the standard format makes my paragraphs run together.
.
.
I tried to compensate by adding extra three empty lines between each paragraph, but the system is somehow designed to disregard this spacing preference.
.
.
So in this toot, I've placed a period at the beginning of each "blank" line -- hoping to create the kind of visual bites or "chunk" I want to see in my toots. -- see Wikipedia "Chunking (psychology)" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chunking
.
.
Do I need to try to explain again in different words?

@chikara No I understood, not sure there is an easy fix though. Might need to be modified in the source.

@freemo Thank you, okay, fine.

A bit of extra punctuation produces the visual chunking I want to see, and these unconventional dots are unlikely to confuse anyone.

Please notice the spacing in the QOTO profiles each of us has already prepared. The visual separation between each of the paragraph-like units is distinct. What I want to see in my toots is precisely this kind of easy-to-read format. It's encouraging to know that the formatting change I want is already standard in our QOTO profiles.

@chikara Its a little hacky but you can probably use a unicode null character to get the same effect without the visible punctuation.
