its not a double like space, its actually a <p></p> tag that you are inserting.  Holding down the shift key makes it a <br>, or single line break.

I believe you can change it in the options section of Dreamweaver.

You can change this in the Tag Library Editor.

You can access this from the edit menu.

Find the <p> tag, it will just show up as p, and with the Line Breaks drop down select no line breaks.

you need to create/edit the <p> tag with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Click text>css styles>new CSS style

Tag > select “p”

Type > select radio button “redefine Html tag”

Define in: select radio button “this document only”
Click ok

From then: under category, select “box”
If  “padding” and “margin” “same for all” box is checked, uncheck them

Top, right and left should all be set to “0” pixels

Bottom should be set to “1”

Click “apply” then “ok”
