Windows Live Writer 2008 has gained a lot of popularity in a short time as the blogging client of choice for many bloggers and even I am using it now to post all the articles here. I know there are still some limitations when compared to the integrated editor such as the one provided by WordPress but the convenience WLR provides for daily use is unbeatable and is the deciding factor for me to pick it for my daily blogging needs.
One of the things in WLR that always bugged me was the fact that whenever I press Enter when compiling a post it starts a new paragraph by inserting a blank line in between. But there are cases when you just want to start witting on a new-line rather than to start a new paragraph. I have found a tip to force the later behavior by pressing Shift + Enter instead of just Enter. Some of you may already know about it but incase someone don’t know it can prove to be really useful because it can provide a lot of convenience when formatting a post. I am not sure why I was not aware of such a simple thing earlier.
See the difference below as I have pressed Enter after Point1 and Shift + Enter after Point 2.
Point number 1 to note.
Point number 2 to note.
Point number 3 to note.
Also I have tried it in WordPress built-in editor and it works there as well, so it should work in most other WYSIWYG editors as well such as Microsoft Word.
