PDF->Mobi extra spaces inserted?

Howdy,

I have been really loving Calibre and am very pleasantly surprised by how powerful it is. It has been invaluable in organizing my collection. It is going to be a godsend for teaching my mother how to manage her Kindle after XMas.

The only hurdle I am still having trouble with is the beast of beasts...converting PDF->Mobi for the Kindle. The defaults seem to produce output that looks like after every two and a quarter lines someone hit enter a couple of times to add a bit of white space. The text is whole and everything is there, but the blank space is someone distracting. I am thinking there is a setting somewhere that I am unaware of.

Anyone know if there is a solution? If I can get Calibre to do the pdf convert and not have to explain how to run MobiPocket Creator to my less than technically proficient mother I will be eternally in your debt. When I was looking for the answer I saw a post from early November where Kovid mentioned that a new pdf conversion engine was in development, so perhaps I just need to be patient. lol.
