In Proclaim, is there an editing code that allows me to create a new line on a slide without breaking to the next slide? I tried double dashes (--) but I either get a long dash or a new page. How do I force a line break on the same slide?

Thanks!

Hi Scott

This is a long running problem. I don't think there is a way to do this easily in song slides. In content slides it is necessary to reduce the font size to a point were all the text will fit on a slide. You can try using Shift+Enter but I don't think it makes a significant difference.

Perhaps I don't understand the problem, but I don't have any trouble causing a line break or inserting a blank line in either song or content slides. A line break is simply placing the cursor where you want the break and hitting enter. A blank line is placing the cursor at the end of the line and hitting shift-enter.

I do not use Proclaim but in "some" editors a soft line return (Shift-Enter) will add a new line instead of creating a new slide... just an idea and easy to test...

Hey guys,

I may not fully understand the problem either as inserting (--) creates a new blank page in my song I am testing with. The shift + enter works as well. 

Scott - are you able to try again using the format I have in my screenshot.

Now I think about it. I believe you are looking for a blank line without a new slide? Essentially two paragraphs on one slide?

If that is the case do control + enter to enable that.

Not for me.

On my Windows 10 machine it's Shift+Enter

On my machine (see above)

No matter what key combination I use this...

becomes this...

but if I put a single 'full stop' on the line I get this...

So what, might I ask, am I doing wrong?

I can't answer that, all I know is what works on my machine.

Here is the original:

One split using Shift+Enter after 4th line

Using Shift+Enter after every line including the previously entered blank line.

Ctrl+Enter does nothing noticeable on my machine.

There was one time when I put the cursor at the beginning of line 5 and did a Shift+Enter It did insert a blank line in the edit pane, but not in the output pane, however when I tried to duplicate it for a screen grab, I couldn't repeat it. However, Shift+Enter at the end of the line always seems to work.

Thanks Brendon

It looks like a Mac fix is called for.

BTW, did you try both a Left-Shift+Enter and Right-Shift+Enter? I think they generate different codes.
