Unhappy 'Remove spacing' feature not working

Hi there,

I've been using Calibre for ages, and it's been wonderful. But lately when I try to use the 'remove spacing between paragraphs' feature, it doesn't work. Sometimes it actually ADDS another line between paragraphs!

Can anyone help me? How do I fix this and start removing lines again?

Spacing can be done so many ways, some are not easy to undo.

Open the problem book in the Calibre book-viewer
Find a problem area . Place the cursor on the word just before the paragraph break.
Right-click: Inspect
This shows all the code layers that affect that place in the book. that might give you a clue.

There may be break tags, extra paragraphs with NBS's

Then you can figure what to do. Edit with Sigil or other Text editor might be needed.
