How to Insert a Line Break Down in a PowerPoint


A line break is a handy word-processing feature used to end a body of text and begin another line but without starting a new paragraph. Usually, when you use the "Enter" key, the following text starts a new line but it also begins a new paragraph, complete with any paragraph formatting you have defined. If you want to start a new line without applying paragraph formats, a line break can be inserted using a simple keyboard shortcut.

  • Access the PowerPoint file you wish to edit.

  • Locate the point in the text where you want to insert a line break and click the mouse there.

  • Press "Shift+Enter" on the keyboard. This creates a new line for your subsequent section of text.
