Preserving Line Breaks in Recipe Directions

You probably know how to use the Format button in the recipe directions area to rearrange directions lines to wrap properly in the directions textbox. 

What you may not know is that the Format button removes all single line breaks, but it ignores double line-breaks.  So if you want to start a new paragraph so that the Format button won’t undo it, enter two line breaks between paragraphs (i.e., you will see a blank line between paragraphs). 

Now when you try the Format button, your paragraphs remain distinct and separate.
