Don't We All Need a Break Occasionally? MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

I am sure there have been times in your life when you had an MS Word or PowerPoint numbered or bulleted list when you decided that you really did need a blank space half way through it. I'm right aren't I? I knew it!

I also know that you probably tried several times to insert that blank visual space and finally decided to give it up. I know this because a lot of folks have written to me to ask me how to make it happen!

There are ways to make this happen but most of them are slow and laborious. As you all know, I am all about saving time and keystrokes and so I will show you today how to accomplish this feat in record time! It really is quite simple -- all you need is an extra key.

Follow the steps below:

  • Position your cursor at the end of the line where you want a visual blank space to follow and hold down your SHIFT + Enter key.

You will now be on the next line which is not preceded by a number or a bullet.

  • You can also hit the Enter key again -- once or more -- for a larger break in your list.

I told you it was quick and easy didn't I?
