Soft Returns

Recommended Posts

This applies to Designer (and, for that matter, Photo too) but it‘s particularly noticeable in Publisher because it‘s intended for handling longer texts.

When I type a soft return (shift return) I expect to get a simple line break within a paragraph — i.e. with no paragraph spacing above or below, or indent. For instance, if there is a short word starting a new sentence at the end of a line, I will usually want to soft return it onto the next line. In all Affinity products, though, a soft return gets treated as if it were just a normal return (starting a new paragraph). I can‘t see any advantage in this, but it can be really annoying when each of these new lines has to have the spacing changed to zero. Could this be added to the snagging list?

Hi @jamessouttar

I think you're getting this because Affinity's default shortcut for a soft return on a Mac is ctrl-return, not shift-return:



Typing shift-return gives me an ordinary paragraph end, rather than just a line end (aka 'soft return').

But you can change this in Preferences:







Affinity Photo 1.7.3, Affinity Designer 1.7.3, Affinity Publisher 1.7.3
