Paragraph spacing / Soft Returns
User should be able to use a soft return (shift+return) to break a line of text without adding paragraph spacing .
Madeline Folz commented
resizing the text box works with a single text box, but as soon as you start working with components and repeat grid, which is arguably the whole point of using Xd over another program, you CAN'T resize the text box to adjust one item without changing ALL of the text boxes in the grid. We need a soft return. This is such a basic feature I can't believe it wasn't in as of day 1.

Yep. This is my first hour seriously using XD, and this is the first critical feature I've encountered that's missing.

If there are two or more columns of comparison content and you want to keep items aligned, it's useful to have a soft-return when one item wraps and the other doesn't.

To illustrate this ticket.
I use Windows 10 Pro.
As long as I have the text field selected, you can see the line break.
If i stop editing the text field, the line break also gets a text break.
Um dieses Ticket zu illustrieren.
This is very ironic that You can't do that in the desktop app, yet in the web prototype comments, that's the only way to add a new line.
+1 badly need soft returns!

This feature would help me out a ton! `Enter/Return` = paragraph break (adds paragraph spacing), `Shift+Enter/Return` for line-break (does not add paragraph spacing).

Version 19, and still no support for a character that is supported in nearly every other application on the Mac since at least 1989. If someone from Adobe could just explain why it's not supported, I think that would ease a lot of frustration. From the user side of things, it just seems like a simple fix — but I'm guessing it's not?
This is obvious improvement, please do it.

I didn't even realize soft returns were a feature. I thought it was just part of the character set. It is shameful that soft returns can't even be copy/pasted in this program! So much effort involved to work around this shortcoming.
Allow line breaks that "ignore" paragraph spacing. As in other Adobe CS products with Shift + Enter

This is such an elementary feature and should be implemented as soon as possible.
Apparently, the difference between new paragraph (<p></p>) and new line (<br/>) has been implemented on the Windows version of XD but not in the macOs version. We, macOs users, would like this feature too, please.
+1 for this request, a very basic feature for (web) designer.
Workaround: insert a lot of spaces until text goes to new line...

Can you elaborate? Area text will auto-wrap text. It's only when hitting ENTER/RETURN that you will introduce a new paragraph (and as such only this break will take on the paragraph spacing). Lines that exist due to auto-wrapping will not.
In the Text Parameter box, you've added the possibility to set a *Paragraph* spacing that is different than the *Line* Spacing. Very good idea!
But the possibilities for using this are limited, as XD does not make any difference yet between a new paragraph (Return key, <p> in HTML) and a new Line (Shift + Return Key, or <br /> in html)
It's a joke that this feature doesn't exist already.
No Line breaks?
Isn't this an app for making websites?
The <br> tag has been around in html 1.m since 1994 by the way.
How it doesn't exist in an app made almost 25 years later is beyond me.
