How can I change the spacing between two paragraphs?

Have a look at the Paragraph panel. I guess the gap is caused by the infamous 12 pt Space after Paragraph default. I still don't get it, why Serif thought that this could be a good default, I would have preferred no value.

Maybe I have misunderstood what you mean but if it defaulted to zero wouldn't there be no space at all between paragraphs?

Indeed. I would also prefer this so I can set my own spacing if necessary.

You can define a default set of text styles and use them.In And, I think, you can change the defaults for text frames.

That would probably be worth a mention in the Feature Requests & Feedback forum. If you do that, maybe make it clear you want a zero default value ('no space at all' might be misinterpreted by some users who might otherwise agree that thois should be the default).
