I've added a Table of Contents Zone macro and set the minimum heading level to 2, but a blank line still precedes the first Heading 2 entry. I've reviewed other community discussions about this issue and most users had extra white space with Heading formatting - once they changed that to Paragraph the issue was resolved.
What else do you suggest I try to eliminate that blank line? Here are screenshots of the published page and the editor:
Hello Jared and welcome to the Community!
Thank you for bringing this to our attention and posting the steps you used to recreate and cause the extra line break. I went through and was able to recreate the extra line break myself. This then leads me to the following article; Confluence Editor Automatically Adds Line Break Before or After a Macro. Within this article, there are a few workarounds for this issue:
- Install Confluence Source Editor plugin
- Edit the source of the page using Confluence Source Editor plugin. Remove the unnecessary <div> tag from the content and save it. Now there shouldn't be any new line break added automatically every time you edit the page.
Another workaround, valid also in Cloud (above plugin is not available for Cloud instances), is to press SHIFT+ENTER instead of ENTER to go to a new line without adding a new paragraphs/div.
These workarounds should help to avoid the extra line return when creating content.
I'm having the same issue when using Excerpt macro wrapped around a table and CANNOT install any plugins because I'm not an admin on our Confluence server.
When I use the Excerpt Include macro and found that there is an extra line break.
Looking at the source, I found that there is an extra br in the Excerpt in the main page that I CAN'T get rid of no matter what I try... -_-
This is still a huge issue almost everywhere when trying to design clean content. The constant addition of white space really needs to go. The workaround with the Source editor does NOT work because there is always a new addition of newlines once the page is saved.
This is particularly annoying when including pages somewhere else because the macro output almost guaranteed generates an extra whitespace newline.
