I am trying to use the Section and Column macros and every time I do ther first line is an empty paragraph that I cannot remove. It adds far to much whitspace on the page.
How can I get around this?
While it is a little frustrating in the editor as so much screen spaces is wasted, it is much worse when these empty paragraphs appear in the viewing of the page. When I inspect the html on the view, it shows a number of blank paragraphs adding unwanted whitespace that I cannot remove.
That sounds like a bug, Darcy. It's likely that it may have already been fixed – I'm not sure what version of Confluence 4.0 you are running but we just recently release 4.0.4:
You'll be pleased to know we are working on a proper page layouts solution that will make the section and column macros mostly redundant.
