I thought I'd raised this before with support, but perhaps not.
Have raised again and got the following response:
"Thanks for contacting Smartsheet Support. I understand that with the Rich Text Widget, there is a double carriage return in-between each line of text. I'd love to assist with this.
After reviewing and reproducing the behavior, I was able to confirm that this appears to be a bug that our engineering team is investigating. Although I cannot provide an ETA to resolution, I can confirm that this is being reviewed."
I'll look forward to a fix. But difficult to believe that anyone who actually uses the widget within Smartsheet hadn't already reported the problem!
