To break a line without creating a new paragraph:

1.
Choose the Content tool.

2.
Click just to the left of a word that you want to bring down to the next line.

3.
If it's a hyphenated word, hold down Cmd/Ctrl and press “-” (hyphen) to insert a discretionary hyphen. (To remove a discretionary hyphen, click at the beginning of the next line, then press Delete/Backspace.

or

If the word isn't hyphenated, press Shift-Return/Shift-Enter .

Figure 2. A paragraph Return creates a new paragraph—no good.


Note: The numbers entered in the Space Before and Space After fields are added together, so try to be consistent and use one most of the time and the other for special circumstances. For example, we use Space After for body text and use Space Before to add extra space above our subheads.
