    Prevent Blank Lines at Top of Column

    kwilly_1572

      So I create bi-weekly publications and I had a question that would make my job easer.

       

      I've been messing with widow & orphans, but I have a slightly different problem.

       

      We use hard returns between paragraphs (a blank line between paragraphs), and I was wondering if there was a way to use GREP or something to automatically prevent blank lines from showing at the top of a column.

       

      Right now, I have to delete & re-add returns throughout the editing process, which as you could guess, can get messy and easy to miss.

       

      I'd like to have it where I don't have to do any of that on my own, so the blank lines would "hide" automatically if at the top of a column, but would return if things get shifted around.

       

       

      Thoughts?

       

      Thanks for the help.
