I can't figure out why there is a carriage return I can't get rid of (2nd question below). First question doesn't have the CR. Why? I re-wrote it a few times.
I have the same problem! I can't force a return when I need and I can't make it not return when it shouldn't. Super frustrating!
I have this same problem with other question types. Question stems and choices, when you paste from Word, add carriage returns in the RCE. (I have only tried pasting from Word, not typing directly. It might be a problem in that context, too.)
