Editor Suggestion

parlayman's avatar - 2wGvpow

In the editor, there is a button for adding a Nonbreaking space. I wish there were a similar button for adding a Line Break, the BR tag. As it stands now, I do this manually by entering the "Source Code" mode, removing the </p> and the following <p> tags and adding the <br /> tag in their place. 

The answer to the question - How often do you really need this? Is - All the time! The reason is that I frequently have a list of stuff I've generated elsewhere and copied to my clipboard ready to paste into a post but I need to add a header row. Here is the example that I happen to have on my clipboard right now:

If I try to add a header row without hacking the source code, I end up with this:

Which is not what I want. What I want is this (no extra line between the header row and the following block of text)

There are many other instances where I would use this feature, such as every time I enter a list by hand and don't want a para break between each line in the list. I know the editor provides ways to enter a list but they don't suit my needs (see above example) and I would much rather just have a Line Break button.

Thanks for giving this a read!

You can already do this very easily.  It works exactly like Microsoft Word — press Ctrl+Enter to insert a <br> tag (single line break, as opposed to a regular Enter press, which ends the paragraph).

Scared Whoa! I just tested it and it works great. It does exactly what I wanted, inserting a <br /> and nothing else. Thanks for the answer!
