Hello 

Is there any way to reduce the vertical separation between Topics on a Tab Group view (e.g. Kanban)? 

I have spent about 45 minutes trying to achieve this. 

I have tried clicking "Hide" under Topic Formatting on the Tag View tab. This does help quite a lot however there is still quite a lot of vertical white space between topics. (And to be honest I do I quite like seeing some of the formatting - e.g. the topic background colours) 

I also tried by going to Design ==> Edit Theme ==> and then working through each of the Stype Groups in turn, and each of their Style Group Levels, and for each one clicking Format on the Ribbon, and then reducing 
a) Reducing the "Distance between siblings" (on the Subtopics Layout tab)
b) Reducing all the Margins (on the "Size and Margins" tab)

I also tried to increase the text size and zoom out, however the 

Any thoughts?

My main PC has a 4K screen but I still find myself needing to do vast amounts of customisation... and I am starting to run out of time quite badly for all this!]

Hi John,

I'm seeing the same issue, it appears that the style control for distance between siblings is not working in the views. I will communicate this to our QA team.
Currently the best way to minimize the spacing between topics in views is to hide formatting.

Not good - I can't work with that.
