Perhaps the problem is mine since I am using a rather old Apple Mac.  I see a large box labelled "paragraph," but when I press it I only get headings of various sizes.  What is the proper method of starting a new paragraph here?  I even thought of running the space bar to the right, which had no effect.  Thank you.

Hmmm...  I had never considered that @Irv - I usually just press the return key, which gives not just a new-line but also an additional empty-line like this 

Now I'm here having pressed "return" / "Enter"

I'm not sure about the use of the word "paragraph" - it really seems to be a "font-size" selection of the various possible "headings", with the default being the so-called "paragraph-font"

It seems to me, just to be a way of selecting different sized fonts and nothing more

although, having just done that on one selected word in the above line, the entire line changed font-size, not just the one word I had selected....

🙂  I wouldn't worry overly much about it !

This, for your interest was done under Chrome on Windows....

Already tried the return key and it was a no-go.  It sounds like the problem lies in the Apple software I am using.  I will try an i-Pad next.  If not, I may resort to {New Paragraph Here}.

Hi Irv:

Your description of what you're seeing sounds like the standard box where one would enter a forum post or reply. Is this what you're seeing?

If so, what you've described as a label saying "Paragraph," is actually a drop down menu for various formatting options. All you need to do is type your text in the box and hit the Enter key on your computer to make a new paragraph.

The options listed in the drop down menu allow you to apply formatting to your text if you want certain parts to appear as larger/bolder headings. For example, I'm applying the formatting to the following lines:

Heading 1

Heading 2

Heading 3

 

Hope that helps.

My Mac only has a return key.  

I just found that I can use the down and left cursor buttons to create a paragraph.  Problem solved.  Thanks all for your efforts.
