You can do this w/o using a clip at all ...
Just go to Replace dialog and replace all occurrences of ^P by ^P^P (^P
is a token that represents a line-feed) so this will turn single-spaced
lines into double-spaced.
Note: any blank lines would be turned into four blank lines - if you
want (say) to change those to only two blank lines you could replace all
^P^P^P^P by ^P^P^P

how by reading it, especially if you've done programming or scripting in
any language before.
Its worth looking at the clips in the sample clips library as models or
just to see how certain tasks can be done.
If/when you want to tackle the bigger jobs feel free to come back and
ask for help or even for a clip to do a specific job. We're a friendly
Several years ago, Jody Alistair (RIP) wrote a 6 part (originally

Maybe someone else knows where to locate it?
