It looks like you've used an empty paragraph as a spacer. Using Space Before or Space After instead of empty paragraphs will prevent empty space at the top of a column.
Thanks for the super quick answer. However I'm not entirely sure I follow what you're telling me
? Maybe my screenshot does not accurately convey what I was trying to say, so I'll re-word it :
- The screenshot as shown shows the page break being inserted on the next line after the end of the paragraph text on the first page.
- The screenshot also shows that, as an alternative, I tried inserting the page break at the end of the paragraph on the first page, i.e. after its period character (i.e. I brought the text for the second paragraph up so it was just joined into one big paragraph, and then I inserted the page break at the period character where I wanted the split).
Both the above produce the same experience as in the screenshot, i.e gap above.
I can't think what else you mean by "empty paragraph as a spacer" but maybe there is something else and maybe that indeed is why my gap is being produced.
Is there any empty paragraph return before number 5?
I notice also the page break marker on the screen shot, on last line of the first page.
I would recommend:
- Always work with Paragraph Styles.
- Never use manual Page Break, use page keeping options instead.
- Never use 2 returns or any form of shift return to create space between paragraphs, use space before and spacer after in the paragraph style definition instead.
