# beamer note spacing issue

I’m having a problem with beamer, where the first paragraph in a note has different spacing from subsequent ones.

MWE:

\AtBeginDocument{\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen=left}}

\documentclass[17pt]{beamer}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\setbeamertemplate{note page}{\insertnote}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Title}
Content
\end{frame}

\note{Hello everyone, and welcome to my talk. Today I'll be presenting

\begin{frame}{Introduction}
Content
\end{frame}

\note{Title first came to prominence in 1883 when Author first described
the phenomenon.

There has since been a great deal of subsequent research on it.}

\end{document}


comes out as

The first paragraph is single-spaced, but the next one is double-spaced.

Any idea how I can fix this?

As mentioned in the first answer to Displaying slides with Beamer and Article class, this seems to be a known bug. The solution that andrew provides does fix the problem, but then you won't get a tiny image of the slide included on the notes page. The fix I use, which does include an image of the slide, is to add an extra empty paragraph like this:

\note{Title first came to prominence in 1883 when Author first described
the phenomenon.

There has since been a great deal of subsequent research on it.

}

I was able to fix it by changing the template to

\setbeamertemplate{note page}{\insertnote\par}
