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.
Thanks for the help.

...can get messy and easy to miss.
That's one reason it's wrong to do it that way. Properly using Space Before and/or Space After solves your problem.
Why not do it right and use space before or space after instead of a blank paragraph to leave a space between?
I'm an idiot, that makes way more sense.
Thank you for straightening me out.
To think of the months i've been living my life all wrong. . . . . .*puts hands in face*
. . . excuse me while I go rethink all of my life choices.
