WordPress Myth 13: When I press enter I only get double spaces!

!@#$%&*^%$#!! , said the blogger trying to get his copy single spaced when all the time he hit enter it would jump down a whole additional line. Has this ever happened to you? The wordpress editor has nice but limited formatting capabilities. But how to do something as simple as single spacing – there is not a way! Fortunately, with a little research we found a way. Using <shift-enter> instead of enter will insert only a single line here are some examples:

This is one line <enter>

This is the second line <shift-enter>
this is the third line <shift-enter>
This is the fourth line <enter>

This is the 5th line<shift-enter>
This is the 6th line… <enter>

This is the 7th line and it brings it here….

Myth – BUSTED!

Why 13? 13 is the decimal ASCII code for carriage return.
