When using WYSIWYG editors, one of the most common questions I receive from users is “How do I create a line return?”
Most users are used to text editors like word where pressing return once will create a line return. However, when using a WYSIWYG like TinyMCE or FCKEditor (now CKeditor), hitting return creates a double space.
So here’s the secret keyboard shortcut for single line returns: Shift + Enter.
This should work in most, if not all, WYSIWYG editors.
