Isn't Confluence editor WYSIWYG?

M K I'm New Here Nov 30, 2020

In many times, I found the actual displayed format is a lot different from what I have edit. Especially the spacing between paragraph and lines.

Can you please let me know how to control the spacing between lines???

Hi @M K 

welcome to this wonderful community

Normally I would say Confluence editor is WYSIWYG - did you try using 'Preview' ? Does this also look wrong?

From your writing I guess you are using server version. Maybe you wanna share a editor view and how it looks after publishing (screenshot) to give us a better impression what is going wrong.

Do you run a theme on your system, any special html/css? This could also cause problems.

Using formatting like headlines and lines aso should in a normal way work fine.

I would also like to add whenever we have Macro in page it isn't WYSIWYG.

Yeah that is by design. There are a few exceptions, for example links that autoresolve.

Depending on your install, there may be a global/space CSS that is overriding the default configuration. This CSS often does not impact the formatting inside of the editor.
