how to force pasted text to be single spaced

When pasting content into wordpress (text specifically). Is there a fast and easy way to make it automatically single space?

    Hi Cornelius,

    The "double" line spacing produced by WP editor is a matter of content layout: the editor uses paragraphs ("<p></p>" html tags) instead of new lines. There are to ways to deal with it:

    a) to achieve a site-wide effect you may customize the CSS style, making the paragraph's margins and/or padding areas smaller

    b) while editing text in an editor (visual mode) press SHIFT+ENTER instead of just ENTER to go to a new line; this will insert a "
    " (line break) html tag into the content.

    Let me know if it helped!
