How to remove extra space at the top and bottom of Page Properties macro?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Properties Macro


There are extra spaces added automatically when I add a Page Properties macro. It gets worse if you have a section and table. This is annoying and too much white space.

E.g. PagePropertiesExtraSpaces.png

Since it doesn't happen with other macros is it possible to remove them from Page Properties?

Please advise.

First off, you don't need to host the image elsewhere, you can paste it right into your question.

Second, you're showing the edit mode, where lots of things look wonky. Often the spacing normalizes in view mode.

Thanks! Milo for quick response.

I was a tad late on fixing the first one while you were typing I guess smile

Here's how it looks after publishing (different example with edit and publish modes







Hope this helps.

Duplicating your layout:

There is no spacing:

So there is something else going on with your page. A couple of things to try:

  1. Click in the space under the table and hit delete, and click in the space under the Page properties macro and hit delete (probably no benefit).
  2. Rebuild on a new page to eliminate anything that might be there.


For this purpose I started afresh so #2 is addressed and have tried #1 a lot with no luck.


Let me try adding text over Page Properties macro and adding some data in the table to replicate your layout.


Interesting thing is that not all macros do that.

No luck


Are you using some CSS?
