Page formatting issue

Hello Knack pros,
I am a brand new trial user. Having trouble with one of my pages. I get a lot of white space that I cannot seem to get rid of.
I have 3 screenshots that illustrate my issue. I hope someone will recognize what I’m doing wrong.
Any help is much appreciated.

Hi @Bill2 - the large white space you have on the Units page is an anomaly with how Knack renders menus on modal popups.
Try reverting page to a standard page (not modal) or add the form that adds a new unit into the modal rather than it being a menu button that opens a new page.
If none of that makes sense I’m happy to jump on Zoom and help out.

Hi Bill, unfortunately, you’re running into a known bug that causes a white gap to be inserted on modals, just like Carl had said.

This would display properly if the page were not a modal, but otherwise having a menu above a table view on a modal page does cause a whitespace to appear.

It’s something that is on our engineering team’s backlog, but due to its visual nature is not currently a high priority to resolve, sorry. If you’d like, you can submit a ticket to and that way we’ll track it for you and let you know once it’s been fixed.

Hi Carl, thanks for the quick reply. Leave it to me to find the bugs right off the bat.
I will play around with the alternatives you suggested before I ask for me help.
Thank you very much,

Hi Marek, Thanks for your reply. Support (or the lack of it is why I am investigation Knack) is so important to a viable business. Glad to see the quick response and this on a holiday as well.
Thank you.

PS - I’m in the U.K. so no public holiday for us :laughing:

Thank you Carl, I will definitely watch and hopefully learn.

I have used your alternative and now my form looks much better.
Loved the video! And I have bookmarked your YouTube homepage. I will be getting a lot out of these videos.

Great to hear, a sub to the channel would be appreciated :+1:
