Can anyone help with a problem?
I stepped away from my book for a couple of months, and upon return I can’t remember how to use the program, particularly when it comes to formatting different parts of a document.
Each document has a title, then pressing return triple spaces to the first paragraph, after which I press return, but the next paragraph triple spaces again. I know there is a command that tells the program, “no this is just the body of the main text and don’t repeat the intro paragraph,” but I can’t remember where that is.
This is no problem if doing a screenplay, the various fields (character, action, etc) are in the format window along with command shortcuts to change element, but search as a may I cannot find these commands when writing a book.
How can I get the program to understand that I just wish to start a new paragraph without creating a blank space between them?
Very frustrating, and after many searches through help, cannot seem to find the answers. Isn’t there a pop up box offering me choices for text formatting? All I can find under formatting are choices like “body” and “heading” all of which change font, size, and make text bold or italic.
I just want to press return and start a new paragraph like on MS Word.
