Need to confess I need to look for that as I don't have all codes in mind
Depending on the nature of the break it should be ^l or ^n

A good synopsis for MS-Word searches:

Edit: Take a closer look to "Use codes to find letters, formatting, fields, or special characters"

This is a good solution for simple structured documents, but if you have big documents with complex structures I prefer to edit or replace formats directly within the format manager (and sometimes with macros too). It is a bit confusing for first time users but if you have set it up and work a while with it you will wonder about why you had not use it before and did all the time workarounds.

It's a good solution for any Word document. If you don't do it with styles, you risk making things very very sloppy.

My personal opinion on this:
There is maybe potential for increasing knowledge of Word formatting and it's tools. My experience is more like if a Word user want to spend some time he will find out it's worth to dive a bit deeper in this subject.

Anyway, as long as a user is ok with a result he should do it in the way he feels comfortable to do it.



Edit: Yes, a Word user should learn to work with styles as this is a general concept for a Word document. Word is not a type writer as some users always seems think about.

But, I've seen way too many Word > ePub where the ePub looks OK as is, but not when yo do things like night mode, changing the font and/or font size and other things. So the code should be clean and using Word however one feels comfortable is just plain WRONG! Using it properly when making an eBook means using styles.

I had edit my previous post because of a miss reading (language thing)

Agree. There a tons of horrible Word documents around and the main issue is that a owner don't want to use a tool in the same way he want's to express his profession in writing a book and you always hear the same story why it is extremely important not leaning it.
