Add ability to do soft returns

In Ellipsis, users can't do soft returns. Every return is a new paragraph. USers would like the ability to do soft returns.

    Any update on this since Sept 2019? Seems like a massive limitation

    Hi Juli

    I know this has been a pain point for a while and I'm sorry the team hasn't been able to knock it out.

    The lead dev worked on this for a while earlier this year and it proved to be much tricker than expected because the foundational text editing library doesn't handle soft returns well. The team will take another crack at it later in the year.

    Not having a Composer respect a soft return remains a hurdle for us in using the tool and ditching Word Press. It's been at "planned status" for more than eight months.

    Hi, looking into this again to see if there is a simpler solution.

    This is the main thing keeping us from using Ellipsis. We're stuck on WP.

    I'm looking into if this is handled by ANS already.
