Keyboard Shortcut

Do you get frustrated when you press Enter in the Visual Editor of WordPress and it puts in a larger space than you wanted?

I often get the frustrated emails from clients asking me to fix it. I usually just pop in to the HTML area and insert a br code after the line and clean up the p tags and send them on their way.

And then I discovered this little short cut. – I think that you’ll fall in love with me 🙂

Instead of pressing the Enter key when you want to drop down to the next line, you press and hold the Shift key first, and while holding you hit Enter and voila your cursor just popped down one line in your editor.

This can be especially useful if you are using a Headline tag to highlight a bunch of text and want the line breaks to be specific. Before it would create a bunch of padding before and after each line as that is what the headline tags are supposed to do.

Let me know how it works for you.
