using enter gets me a new paragraph instead of a new line.

Recommended Posts

In publisher, when I use ENTER, I get a new paragraph.

Just like typing here.

But I just want to start a new line, NOT a new paragraph. I've tried all kinds of changes in the paragraph menu.

Please help, because I'm loosing it......

Enter correctly gives you a paragraph break. Shift+Enter will give you a Line Break. Or you could insert one from the menu, Text > Insert > Breaks > Line Break.

If you're using line breaks you will probably want to set Text > Show Special Characters, too. Otherwise the breaks will probably cause you some confusion eventually :)

I think it’s also worth noting that you should normally only add a manual line break when the software does not automatically break the line where you want it to.
(In another forum, years ago, I read of someone who was adding a manual line break at the end of every line of a text frame because that’s what they thought they had to do.)
