I’ve tried this with other plugins that add shortcodes and I’m not seeing any issue. The plugins you mentioned would be too involved to me to set up and test on one of my test sites and your setup seems complex.
Can you give me an example of shortcodes in a WYSYWIG that is producing the extra white space?
