Does anyone know, how I can manage TinyMCE to insert <br> instead of <p>Paragraphs</p> when pressing enter?

The best would be if you press enter once, it inserts a normal break. Pressing enter twice it starts a new paragraph.

And yes I know, that Shift+Enter would do it, but my client would like to have the behavior changed.

Thanks for any help


Give shift+enter a try.

That shortcut tends to be the default in a lot of different text editing apps for break type switching.

  • Thanks for your answer... but I know that behavior... but my client doesn't like that ;) – lumio Jun 22 '12 at 23:42

You need to adjust the WYSIWYG settings from /admin/config/. In CKEditor the section Cleanup and output has options for Enter mode and Shift+Enter mode where you set the tag for each action. I'm not 100% about the exact setting for WYSIWYG, but it should be similar.

  • Yes, but that's only for CKEditor and the question was about TinyMCE... – Druvision Dec 15 '13 at 3:32
