Improved Text Formatting/Spacing
In a text box that contains multiple paragraphs there is no way to increase the space between paragraphs or add a manual line break/space. This means each paragraph needs to be it's own text box, which doesn't really work well for many styles and is just a silly work flow.
More customization of text would make Spark a very useful tool, but without simple things like that and the ability to specify font size, I think I'll go back to Illustrator/Photoshop.

There are a few things I would like to see in the spacing side of things as well as general font manipulation.
1) negative letter spacing - sometimes we would like to kern letters to have smaller space between letters. Can't do it right now
2) right now the smallest font size is 12. would like that to be 10.
3) would like better font manipulation in general - I needed to create bullets the other day, and there was no provision for doing so. I couldn't even build them manually. AdobeSpark does not allow for small circles. I thought creating a separate text box with dashes (-) would work, but it did not provide the proper spacing. I ended up creating a dash at a larger font size and then copying and pasting that text box over and over again to get me the bullets I needed. This is a lot of work for something as simple as a bullet.
The bigger the company the less you can expect them to actually care what users want. 5 years later and a massive company like Adobe won't address such a core feature yet they will "update" the app and charge you for a feature that was once free (resizing). That tells you what they value (hint: it's not you).

And here we sit, years later, still waiting for this basic feature. What's the deal, Adobe?

I was convinced I had done something wrong after finding out that I could not manually break up my text in Spark.

After I realized I could not manually break up my text in Spark, I was convinced I had done something wrong. I found a closed post from 2017 where this information was in great demand! It has been solicited for a long time, and it's absurd to omit it from variant 1.0. Text passages should be given much more weight than they currently have.
I stressed these simple problems so much. The devs for Spark even contacted me aand we had a cenference call. They got the three main things that we needed "row break, anchor points among others." And promised to fix that immediatly. In fact they said it was already done.
This was years ago. Nothing has changed. At all.
This is a **** tragedy and I have considered it abandon ware for a very long time.

very easy to understand your words I was searching for this kind of stuff.
Thank you for sharing this with us
I was willing to learn Adobe. it's very informative for me thanks to post here it will help me in future
thank you. (https://www.flashfix.london/)

I know your pain and disappointment.

Hold in there. There's more disappointment to come.

It is truly odd how Adobe totally disregards long-standing usefulness bugs like this...yet gets all invigorated when they present new elements that nobody truly looked for. I mean they are decent new provisions, yet common gentlemen and ladies let's sort the essentials out following 5 years of solicitations prior to continuing on to the following sparkly thing.

Allow to add empty line between the paragraph which helps good formatting also add single character customization, means easily apply different font, weight and color on a specific character in any word.

I'm a genuinely new Spark client, and when I found I was unable to enter manual line breaks in my text, I figured I MUST accomplish something incorrectly. I looked through this issue, and the principal demand for this that I found was in a now shut post from 2017! The solicitations for it have been going for quite a long time, and I think that it is crazy that it was anything but an element in variant 1.0. There should be MUCH more authority over text passages.

To isolate lines of text on the web, select the "pencil" symbol to alter text, and utilize the space bar to isolate the lines (see the connection, make a book break). In the event that you might want to change the space between these lines, you can do this by changing the "line dispersing" slider found in the altering bar. I execute this on my site https://taxbox.ae/. So I think this is conceivable acceptable yet not under any condition.

As far as formatting text, when I export this into a PDF, I use my Acrobat Pro to edit the text how I want. I can even remove the special character. https://tomzpot.com/

Not being able to add a blank line between is ridiculous and time consuming. https://tomzpot.com/
