    Spacing between paragraphs 5th Aug 18 at 11:30 AM
    The forum seems to add additional space between paragraphs in my posts. Here's an example (post no 4)

    If I edit a post I can remove the additional returns and save so that the spacing is correct. I'm using a Windows 10 PC and Firefox if that makes a difference.

    Any advice on how to avoid this?

    Thank you. Yes I can do that but there must be some coding problem causing MSE to sometimes insert extra returns.

    I see that it happens to some other posters so presumably it is connected to how individual computers and/or their browsers communicate with MSE.

    Edit: Here's an example with two additional returns above.
