I am unable to use mdframed on my server so I am currently creating a framed box like this:

\usepackage{framed}
\begin{document}
\begin{framed}
\small{
\noindent \textbf{Key Results}:blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah \\

\noindent \textbf{Implications}:blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah 
}
\end{framed}
\end{document}

enter image description here

Can someone please tell me how to reduce the padding in this box so that it appears more like this?

What does the »framed« manual say? –  Thorsten Donig Apr 17 '12 at 17:43

\small is a command without an argument –  Marco Daniel Apr 17 '12 at 17:47

Use \FrameSep0pt to have no padding or an appropriate length to adjust.

This has to be done/changed outside the framed environment. –  Werner Apr 17 '12 at 17:49

@Werner Obviously, like any length you need to set it before you use it. –  Yiannis Lazarides Apr 17 '12 at 17:52
    
Awesome! Thank you very much. –  Legend Apr 17 '12 at 17:58
    
When I use this macro, it just outputs "0pt". Not quite the effect I was looking for. :P Do you know why it doesn't work properly when I use it? –  StrawberryFieldsForever May 3 '13 at 12:12
    
Never mind, I was using the framebox macro, not framed... –  StrawberryFieldsForever May 3 '13 at 12:18
