The "Enter key not doing a paragraph break" problem
Over the last couple of months, I've seen a few posts from learners saying that when they hit Enter, it doesn't create a paragraph break, and their posts have consequently been quite hard to read. Until now, I assumed that it was an issue with certain browsers, certain keyboards or even certain parts of the world. However, (and note I really wanted to start a new paragraph with that word!), I am currently in Paris and I'm borrowing a friend's laptop. It's a perfectly OK Dell laptop, running Windows 7 and using the latest version of Internet Explorer. And guess what? Hitting the Enter key does nothing on this forum. It works perfectly well on Word and other forums but here, nada! I've tried the various combinations that work in other places (ie SHFT + Enter) but nothing will convince it to create a new paragraph.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
