Is there a way to control spacing after paragraphs in Pages for the iPad?

In MS Word, I can specify in points or inches how much space there will be after each paragraph. When I import a DOC file into iPad pages, that formatting is supported. But I can't see how to get that kind of formatting in Pages itself.

iPad, iPhone OS 3.1.3

    I've hunted round and it's just not here and worse than that, the templates not even have paragraph spacing built in. As a graphic designer, nothing irritates me more than people submitting copy with added paragraph returns to space them out. It is beyond tedious and needs to be fixed soon

    Be glad that you don't deal with my wife. Instead of tabs, she uses multiple spaces!

    Looks like this has been around for awhile - I'm not seeing any updates in the most recent version of Pages for iPad. Seriously? I'm surprised, the product has been around for awhile now and this seems like a pretty basic formatting feature. Hopefully I'm just missing something...

    YOu can format a blank page to use as a template with spacing between paragraphs and then transfer it to the iPad and it should keep the formatting.
