I need to insert a line break (soft return) in my target segment in WFP (version 3.4.5)
In Office documents, this is done with Shift+Enter.
However, this key combination doesn't work in WFP.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help,

I’m afraid this is not possible, or at least I’m not aware of a way to insert manual line breaks in the TXML editor of Wordfast Pro.

What you could do (as a workaround) is add some random string (eg. "XYZ") where you want the line breaks to be inserted, and then use Find/Replace in the exported document (replace "XYZ" with "^l").

Dear Katleen,

Is it already there on your source? If so, you should found it already as a tag/placeable and all what you need is to insert this tag into the target segment as usual.

Kind regards,
