Large spaces betweeen paragraphs

7 replies
When I make a post on the forum, there is usually large spaces between the paragraphs in the post even though I only put in one space. It's usually 2 lines of blank space but I have seen as much as 3 lines. You have to edit the post to fix it.


This makes posts take up more screen space than needed so please look into it.

    As you can see in the post above, there are 2 line spaces between my 2 paragraphs, but I only put in one when I typed it.

    Using Firefox? I get the same thing and usually edit to remove the extra line space.


    It's happened before and was fixed by techs - this time you learn to work around it. As far as I know it's only when using Firefox.

    I've been witnessing this for months here.


    I always edit my posts to rid of the extra space.


    I also have to click twice in the text box, otherwise I end up typing nothing if I'm not looking at the screen.


    I'm using Firefox. I'll test with Safari when I dig out my highly complex password.

    Yeah, I use Firefox. I only use chrome to look at websites I develop lol. So I don't know if it happens in Chrome for me.



    I also edit my posts to remove the extra space but many people don't which is why I bothered to bring it up.




    I found out today after I posted this thread that you don't have to edit your post after you submit it to remove the spacing. You can either preview then remove spaces or "go advanced" then remove spaces then post. But it's still more steps than need be.

    I usually use 'preview' but sometimes I just leave spaces...

  • Using shift+enter to end your paragraph works too.
