I have a table in my header, after the table I would like for the content of my page to just start, but there there is a line after the table that I cannot remove which is making my spacing not work the way I want it to.

To demonstrate what I mean check out this quick example document I made that shows the problem. I have some text on the line I would like to remove, I would have thought I could just delete that text and press backspace but that doesn't do anything.

That's not possible to do, without removing the header altogether.

There are two ways to reduce the spacing:

  1. lower the font size from 11 to 6 points
  2. lower the line spacing from 1.15 to 1

The changes are not big, but perhaps enough.


I can't find any way of removing it completely. You could delete the text and make it 1pt in size, which would reduce the gap at least.
