Enter Key

This plugin defines the Enter key (line breaking) behavior in all contexts. Depending on the configuration, the editor will present the line break in one of the following ways: 

  • paragraph (<p>) block
  • <div> block
  • <br> element.

Shift+Enter key behavior can also be defined in a similiar way to accompany the Enter key configuration.

Note: Changing the Enter Mode setting to BR or DIV is not recommended. The default CKEDITOR.ENTER_P mode is fully supported by all editor features and plugins and is also the most correct one in terms of best practices for creating web content.

If you want to change it to control paragraph spacing, you should use stylesheets instead.
