Confluence 4, paragraph new line

Hi,

When I typ a word and press enter, a extra empty new line is added, I cannot delete it. How can I have the editor not add this extra line?

Here's how the HTML on the page will be marked up, and should help you understand a little...

Typing Enter will have this effect:

<p>previous paragraph</p>
<p>[CARET-HERE]</p>

Typing Shift+Enter will have this effect

<p>previous paragraph<br/>
[CARET-HERE]</p>

Use Shift and Enter. This will create one line.

Ah ok, would have never guessed it, thanks :)

Peat,

Should also highlight that we have a feature request to change the default paragraph bahaviour. If you think that would help you, you might want to watch/vote this issue: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-5949
