Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-10-06 20:08:46 UTC
I assume this is text grid related, as modifying the settings in text grid tab of page style does decrease the height of the space. Below is an example of how i was able to slightly decrease the size of the space.

1. Format > Page > Text Grid (you need to have asian support enabled)
2. set to 'Grid (lines and characters)'
3. uncheck 'snap to characters'
4. set to 'No Grid'
