Why do I get a blank bullet point as the first item of the TOC?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Table of Contents Macro

Every time I use this macro, it shows an empty/blank entry as the first item of the list.

I don't know why this appears!

Make sure that there isn't an empty line above your first header, or make sure that everything (macros, tables, etc.) are set to the Paragraph style.

The first line in the article, the one with the TOC macro on it, was set to Heading 2.

Changing it to Paragraph got rid of the blank bullet point item within the rendered TOC.
