The default position for the footer in a new app is 1166 px. I notice that sometimes it moves up slightly to fill empty space, but still leaves a significant amount (3-4 inches) of white space when I add any element to the page. If I delete all elements, it moves all the way up to the header (which I want). If I move it up to close extra white space, something still pushes that footer down, even with everything set to collapse when hidden.
Also, if I move it up too much, some elements slip below the footer and it looks bad.
Is there a better way to control the position of the footer? I just want it to move to just below the last content on the page.
