How to remove the empty line between text sections?

I can’t get rid of this annoying blank line between two text sections. I made sure that I didn’t add any space after or before a paragraph.

In the “Separators” section in layout editing, there doesn’t seem to be a way for me to not add anything before section or between sections. The options are limited to “Single return,” “Empty line,” “Page break” and “Custom.” How do I set it to NOT add anything between text sections?

Thanks in advance!

You simply need to select “Single return” - that places a return after the end of one section and nothing further, which is exactly what you want.

All the best,

How has this changed in Scrivener 3? It used to be a simple change in the compile window, but it seems to be gone now.

If you’re just now switching from Scrivener 2 to Scrivener 3, I’d recommend taking a look at our upgrade guide for Scrivener 2 users. You can find it here: … date-guide
