Works for me in RH7.
Does Shift+Enter still do a line break for you in Word? If not, did something on your PC recently affect keystroke mapping?
Thanks for the idea. I did try Shift+Enter in Word and it works fine, so something's up with my RH7. I have a tech. support contract, so I'll give them a call tomorrow, but thanks for replying because at least now I know that it's working in someone else's RH7. :)
You could get around this issue by creating a style with no space between the carriage returns.
Thanks Colum, that is a good idea but I don't know how to do that. Can you tell me? I am using a stylesheet in my project and I know a little bit about styles, but am not sure how to create one. I suppose I can copy my "Normal" style, then put <br> in the tags instead of the </p> for carriage returns ( ? ).
1. Open the style sheet you are using in the topic.
2. Click New.
3. Give the new style a name (e.g Links).
4. Click Format.
5. Click Paragraph
6. Change the "Spacing Before" and "Spacing After" values to 0pt.
7. Click OK.
8. Click Close.
Now you have a style called Links that can be applied to text.
If you have these links on all (or most ) of your topics you could get very clever and set up a template that you use when you create the topic. That way you do the formatting once in the template and this is then applied when you create a topic.
Just for the record this seems to be an issue with some installations of Robohelp 7.
I have been reliably informed that Ctrl + Shift + Enter will give you the soft return <BR> tag.
Hope that helps
I've just tried what you said and it works! Thanks so much. I hadn't had time to create a style as Colum suggested, but your keyboard shortcut certainly helps me because I'm so busy, I don't know when I'd have a chance to create the style.
