Ability to adjust the line height in the rich text documentation

There is no setting to change the whitespace line height in the rich text editor.

Currently, if you type a line in a model element's rich text Properties > Documentation and then press ENTER, the cursor will appear, not on the next line, but rather on the line after. After you press ENTER, you will be able to press TAB in order to indent one line.

However, if you type a line and then press CTRL + ENTER, the cursor will appear on the next line. After you press CTRL + ENTER and then press the TAB key, the entire paragraph gets indented instead of just the one line.

There should be a way to adjust the spacing between lines typed in the rich text editor of model elements' Properties > Documentation
