Reduce blank space between lines

+3 votes
I hit something  while typing & it left large blank space to my next line [or paragraph ] now I cannot close that space. I thought  shift + enter would work but instead moved it down further leaving more space. I know there is a simple key to hit but cannot remember what it is

Help !!

Hi Martha!

You had some extra carriage returns in there that I deleted. The main problems were the template's location & hidden text. Recent template changes have resulted in more space below a template. This can be reduced by putting text or a category immediately after the last } - which is not possible in usual template usage (last thing before == Biography == & == has to start on a new line). Considering the layout of your profile, the template you used was under the Name Study heading, so I put the link to your to-do list on the same line.

Toward the end of your bio, there was hidden text between a heading and visible text. It shouldn't, but sometimes hidden text will add extra space between elements that are visible. I moved the hidden text to below the visible text.

Cheers, Liz

Thanks Liz for all the work you did to straighten my mess up. I could never have done it ,even with instructions.

greatly appreciated. sorry to have caused you all of that trouble.

No trouble at all Martha! Took hardly any time, and I love figuring out what coding is causing problems.

Cheers, Liz
