Thanks a lot.

You can press shift-enter when typing to give you <br> instead of <p> in TinyMCE.

I'd be inclined to persuade client of the merits of using the P tag, but you can change this behaviour.

Add the 3 lines below to the tinyMCE.init function in the content block's, editor_config.php file. Or better still copy the entire content block folder to your site root's /blocks folder and make the change there.

tinyMCE.init({
   forced_root_block : false,
   force_br_newlines : true,
   force_p_newlines : false
});


Hope that helps.

I don't see why we shouldn't have both.

Is there a way to 'single enter' for break,
and 'double enter' for new paragraph?

That would be ideal.
