The text editor now seems to be adding in additiional <p> markers into the text which spaces the paragraphs out excessively and retrospectively editing to remove them partially works. The preivew seems to convert any CR into a <p> and not just one ?

Makes for posts ending up a lot longer on screen and a lot more wasted white space...

Gave up trying to edit them out on my last post
https://secondlifestorage.com/editpost.php?pid=55089&processed=1


Ended up removing all paragraph spacing (two CR - one at end of line and additional to create a single line of space), so it looks reasonable.

First paragraph

Second paragraph

Third paragraph

This is without any images in and seems to work ok.

Went back in to the post again, added single CR and formatting now looks ok ??



The paragraphs did have this sort of spacing



Between them (way more than one blank line as per a <p> definition and setting)

Scenario 1.
Add a new post, save it as draft, go back in to edit. Excess cr/lf added.

Some previews are adding additional linefeed or linefeed/cr combinations in

The editor or html interpretation may be converting <p> markers to cr+lf or lf+lf

Re-edited the last post for about the 5th time to remove all the excess spacing. Unless this is an intentional strategy to increase the page sizes, decrease the number os posts per page and increase the page request to try and bump up your advertising hits. Not a great idea if it is.
