Users that choose to use EditLive! as their choice of editor in WCM are often confused that when you hit the enter key this will generate <p> </p> tags and when you Shift Enter it will generate a <br /> tag.
This is different to popular word processors like Microsoft Word where one "enter" equals a line break and two "enters" equals 2 line breaks or a paragraph. So a user will, out of habit, hit enter twice for a paragraph in EditLive! and will get 2 paragraphs worth of spacing (which is more likely than not, too much spacing).
The spacing of <p> tags can be adjusted using CSS , which is one
way you can work-around this behaviour. Alternatively you can edit your ibm_
Find the entry
Change the value of brOnEnter to true and reboot your server.
