I'm willing to fall on my sword for the benefit of others on this one. I'm using a View (Classic) and I like to enter everything in the Text tab with nice line spacing and HTML comment tags so it's more readable. See example here. When I display the view in the front end, all my spacing and comments end up as paragraph tags in the output which display as blank lines that I don't want. Is there a way to have the view "code" be easy to read and have it not appear with extra lines? I've spent years working around this by eventually mashing all the code together (kinda like minifying) and I really don't want to do that anymore. I guess I could write from jQuery to remove all the occurrences of empty paragraph tags, but not even that would solve the problem.

I noticed this as well. It happens to me all the time. I opened a support ticket regarding it, but they said they couldn\'t replicate it and I didn\'t have time to keep providing more evidence that this was happening. Here is another thread about the same issue:
