If pressing Enter on the alpha-numeric section puts a column break instead of a paragraph break (Enter on the Numpad is supposed to do that), you have a notebook that maps both enter keys together, and the behavior will depend on the status of the NumLock.
Best solution is to make a custom set of keyboard shortcuts and edit them so both enter keys are assigned to the paragraph break. Create a new shortcut for the column break if you want one.
I don't know how to set up keyboard shortcuts - so I guess I will have to get with someone in my office to help me out
thx for the quck reply
Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts... and make a new set.
Change the Product Area dropdown to Type and Tables, then scroll down the list to Insert Break Character: Paragraph Break and then put your cursor in the new shortcut box. Press the Enter key on the numpad and change the context to Text. You'll get a warning that the shortcut is already assigned below the shortcut field, but just click the assign button.
If you want a new shortcut for the column break, scroll back up to that one, then type in a new shortcut. You can use the ctrl, alt and shift modifier keys if you like, along with anything other than a key on the numpad.
thanks - this is very helpful
