Paragraph Break

    I don't get the wordpress. When I copy paste my post from Word using either "Copy as Plain Text" or "Copy from Word", it neglects the existence of paragraph break. I also tried to do it manually from the "Visual" tab or the "HTML" tab. Still I'm getting the same results.

    I tried using the </br> tag but the space is too large for a paragraph break.

  2. First off, MS Word is not a web application, it is a print media application. It does not speak “web.” WordPress will automatically strip out any Word formatting since it will destroy your blog. If not immediately, then at some point in the very near future. You can write in MS Word and paste it in using the “paste from Word” icon in the editor tool bars, but any formatting will have to be done right in the WordPress editor after it is pasted.

    To get single spacing hold the SHIFT key down when you click ENTER at the end of the paragraph.
