Android PreferenceScreen padding margin

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I want to remove the padding/margins of a PreferenceScreen. See XML below. I have tried everything on the I removed the android:title to see if it would make it smaller but it seems like it is a set height like a CheckBoxPreference. Any help would be great! <PreferenceCategory android:title="@string/schedule_preferences"> <PreferenceScreen android:key="screen_preference" android:title="@string/month1_title_screen" android:summary="@string/month1_summary_screen"> <CheckBoxPreference android:title="@string/Day1_title" (HowTos)
