[resolved] Automatic paragraphs when I don't want them (5 posts)

    When I am writing a blog entry and press 'enter', the cursor automatically starts a new paragraph rather than going to the next line down.

    How can I stop it doing this?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

  2. Are you using the HTML editor or the GUI?

    Since Web is not Print, this feature is actually pretty much as designed. You should only be hitting enter when you need a new paragraph (the idea of a new line doesn't quite translate to web stuff).

    Holding the shift key and pressing enter will create a line-break instead of a new paragraph.

    Thank you!

    That has solved a LOT of frustration.

    cheers

  5. FYI - That only works if you're using the GUI/WYSIWYG editor.

    If you're using the HTML editor, hitting enter once makes a new line.
