       very strange indeed  ;-)

       Actually, I remember experiencing something like this - if not this
- and had to delete all those blank lines ...
           I just figured I'd done something wrong  ;-)

 Can someone take a look at this bug report and let me know if it's
expected behavior. For some reason it seems to be a feature (but I have
no clue why someone would want this behavior).

  I currently don't particularly remember what that shortcut is
intended for, but...

1_ I can replicate the first part of the process (which moves the
text to the second page). I am apparently unable to reproduce the
_second_ "Place your cursor behind the first rule of the second page"

as described in the original report. Since I am not testing in Mac,
perhaps this behavior is different?

2_ The first part of the procedure inserts a new paragraph and resets

the style. I'm not sure what exactly triggers the insertion of a new
page, since I don't see any kind of "page break".

3_ Whatever the specific position "behind the rule" really means, and

whatever is supposed to be, there are two details that are not clear
(to me) in the initial report.
  3.1_ What the procedure is supposed to do / achieve? (In other
words, what's exactly wrong or unexpected or buggy?)
  3.2_ What exactly *the reporter* was trying to achieve? (Isn't it
possible that he is trying to do something by using an inadequate

Whether this is a bug or not, IMHO the first step (before even
investing time) should be getting clear answers to the above points
#3.1 and #3.2.

IMHO, Only if the expected supposed behavior is really incorrect for
that specific procedure, then perhaps it deserves some attention; if
not, "do no harm".


He actually reported on my behalf ;) So I am the OP and Joren was my proxy

As for what I'm trying to achieve - a usable outline for my law classes -
they already run into the 70+ pages, having all this blank space is not
working out for me.

I agree about his second step - I should have clarified. What he means that
if you go to the end of the first line of the new page (ie. you've pushed
enter after a line "test" and all the text below it jumps down to the next
page. Then go to the next page, place the cursor at the end of the first
line and push enter again - you'll see that the heading jumps back up to
the previous page (exactly where you'd expect it to be).

Additionally a real problem is that ctrl+z doesn't put the text back to its
previous location - furthermore if you turn on non printing characters,
it's impossible to really see what caused the jump (no characters show in
all that empty space)
