    Default Why Don\'t My Posts Have Paragraphs?

    When I write a post I create paragraphs by double spacing, as I do in all text programs.The paragraphs show up in the preview box, but in the final post all the sentences are run together in one paragraph. What gives? I see other happy paragraphinators here.I have double-spaced between every sentence in this post, so let's see what happens.

    Again. All the sentences ran together. This never happens on the Compact Tractor Forum. (Do they still exist?)

    Are you talking about two spaces (with your spacebar) or two line breaks (with your enter key)? You have to hit enter for a line break. Two spaces won't do anything.

    If it matters, I'm on a Mac running OS X.

    Lemme see if my memory from about 5 years ago is correct. The Mac OS generates a <CR> only when you press <Enter>, while Windows and DOS OS'es produce <CR><LF>. Perhaps that's the reason, Muhammad?

    This is always a tad confusing between Macs and other systems, but us Mac folks generally use the return key to generate line breaks. The enter key oft times is reserved for other functions, such as actually "entering", or submitting the text.

    I'm pecking away on my Mac right now, using return for paragraphs, while enter does absolutely nothing.

    Glenn -- is this a new behavior that just cropped up?

    Harv,
    I think if you have to many big words in a sentence the computer will apodictically get confused. I typed a return did it work[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    You could be right, Al. I'm sure there's a tolerance limit on words like "paragraphinator". [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Fortunately, I don't know many big words, so that may make all the difference.

    This message, for example, should appear double-spaced.

    I have always used the Enter key to create a new paragraph. Let me try.
