Poetry and line breaks
« on: July 14, 2018, 02:53:09 AM »

I enjoy working in Scrivener every day. I write both poetry and prose, and I really wish there would be a way of changing the function of the Return key, especially when writing poetry, so that Return meant what it meant in the old days: simply a new line (like in this form), not a whole new paragraph.
I know I can get this by using ctrl+Return, but it still feels confusing or counter intuitive, especially while the same command is shift+Return in other software like for instance Word that I still sometimes have to switch to.
And there is no way of changing the keyboard commands, as far as I am aware. Or are there?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I just prod the Enter button when it's time
for a new line. ::)

My gripe is how to get rid of the automatic capitalization when a new line starts - without destroying my conventional settings that I need for general writing.
