Carriage return is giving me a column break.

I don't know why, but just hitting a simple carrage return is giving me a coulumn break. I'm not sure how to make this stop?

    Which "Enter" are you using...

     

    Numpad "Enter"--default keyboard shortcut is set for column break

     

    "Enter"--Carriage return

    Are you using a Windows laptop? There are a number of them that seem to map the numpad Enter and the alphapad enter together, and changing the stae of the NumLock toglles back and forth. If you have such a sytem, the only thing you can do is Edit > Keyboard Shorcuts... and remap the numpad Enter key to be a paragraph break, then create a new shortcut, if you want one, to replace the column break.

    Try holding Shift and hitting Enter or Return?

    I think you'll find that Shift + Enter is a soft return (forced line break) or a frame break, depending on the status of the numlock.

    Until you try to apply paragraph styles, and what was intended to be two separate parapgraphs is seen as one, and can't be assigned separate paragraph styles.

    The point is it DOESN'T work if the keybord binds both keys together. First of all, you don't get a paragraph break, you get a force line break, which is not the same at all, and second, if the keys are bound tegether the numlock will toggle that back and forth between the forced line break and the frame break, just as without the shift it toggles paragraph return and column break. This is a BIOS problem, or perhaps a keyboard problem, and it cannot be "fixed" in ID, only worked around by editing keyboard shorcuts so both the regular and numpad enter keys are both assigned to the same tasks.

    CTRL + ENTER  works!!   I'm using a PC, and control + enter key (either standard or the number pad enter key) work.  Silly but it works.
