Paragraphs and Line Breaks (and other shortcuts)
By now you've probably realized that as you type and insert carriage
returns (hitting the "Enter" key), FrontPage automatically puts a
"double space" between your paragraphs.
If you're new to the world of web design, this is probably a little
unexpected for you. Word processors only put "single spaces" between
carriage returns -- why does FrontPage put "double spaces"?
Well, it's not just FrontPage -- it's just how the web works, and
you'll have to accept it. For a longer explanation, wait for our HTML
introduction article. For now, just know that web browsers will always
put a "double space" between your paragraphs (unless you get really
advanced and use stylesheets).
If you want to insert a single line break,
you can easily do this in FrontPage by typing Shift-Enter (or going to
Insert > Line Break). See below for more keyboard shortcuts.
Tip: Keyboard Shortcuts and Right-Clicking
Getting to know FrontPage's keyboard shortcuts and
right-clicking will help you to be more efficient. Right-click to
quickly access table, cell, picture, theme, or page properties.
Right-clicking on an object (navigation bar, picture, table, etc.)
will generally allow you to access the properties. Here are a few of
the keyboard shortcuts we use most often:
