Font size and padding Confluence 5.0

Is there a way to change the font size and padding on Confluence OnDemand 5.0? Or a workaround to fit more on the screen (other than scaling with browser zoom)? Having limited control over this in OnDemand seems to be quite a drawback. We use this product on desktops and want to see more information on the screen not less. The default font size and line padding in Confluence 5.0 is oversized and honestly pretty ridiculous. It is a step backwards for us.

The font size and padding can be changed in Confluence OnDemand if you switch to the "Documentation Theme" and apply some CSS.

Confluence Admin -> Themes, then choose "Documentation Theme" and Confim.

The "Configure theme" link should be visible. Click this and then put your CSS into the Header textbox. For example:

{style}
p, ul, li, table
{
font-size: 10pt;
}
p
{
margin-top: 5px;
}
{style}

Save it, then refresh one of your pages to see the result. This worked for me.

I agree. There is also padding missing in multiple places that simply make the layout/display look bad.

Not to mention space logo corners now getting cut off.
