Hi @Vikram Ingleshwar 

To reduce the line spacing a bit, please try using "shift-enter" rather than just enter between lines.

Best regards,

Thanks Bill for the reply.

Perhaps you could change to the Default Text Renderer; however the field would lose most of the formatting and macro capabilities.

There may also be marketplace addons (often for purchase) to supply other renderer types for fields.

Thanks for your prompt support.
