Insert a blank paragraph before and after the table


when I edit a page in Confluence, before and after the table is empty paragraphs inserted. Is it possible to turn it off?

Hi Adam,

The empty paragraphs are included by default and there is no way through the UI to turn them off. Why did you want them removed? There may be another way to achieve what you're trying to do.



Unfortunately these are necessary to allow placement of the cursor before or after a table (so you can insert more content).

However, these blank lines only appear in the editor and not in the final page content.
