    shift-return mood swings

    d(macd
      We purchased CS2 with Dreamweaver 8 a while back and I'm having persistent problems with inserting line breaks (<br>) with shift-return. Sometimes it works fine, but often, I just get that black circle with the line through that says - sorry! I'm not letting you do that! It's a simple thing, but enough to slow down my productivity (especially since I've been trying to deal with Adobe customer service by phone...) and is driving me bonkers. Anyone have (or better yet, solved) this same problem?

          I can't help you with the specific issue, but how often do you need to
          actually insert BR tags? Perhaps a different tag would be a viable option?
          Lists? Paragraphs? Etc?

              have you tried using a different keyboard to verify the one you have isn't
              going bad?

                Are you using a Mac? I don't recognize the black circle error your talking about.
