Hello,

I am using RoboHelp 2015 and Windows 7.

When generating printed documentation, two blank lines separate topics, as seen in the picture below:

I am wondering if it's possible to make that space smaller? I've already tried adjusting Before/After paragraphs to 0 in RoboHelp and Word for those styles.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Look at the source topic and see if there are extra lines below the last line of text.

During generation, they will be treated as paragraphs.

Turn on Word's Show / Hide paragraph markers and see if that space really is two paragraphs or part of that Heading style.

No, not the case. Having checked that before asking for your help

There are no extra lines in RoboHelp topics sources.

Is it somehow adjustable? I mean to configure spacing between topics in printed output.

Sorry, not into mind reading.

I also don't know if you are selecting a CSS or Word template at the end of the print dialog. If you would like to set this up in a dummy project with just a couple of topics that gives the same result, I would be happy to take a look.

See the Contact page on my site and send the project as instructed there. Do make sure you include a link to this thread and please do not email the project direct.
