Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

Whenever I post anything (answer/question) I have to hit [RETURN] twice to make one visible return. I don't like reading one long-go text. I like it in paragraphs.

This is a text with one carriage return for each new line:

Hello. This is an example text. I like reading in paragraphs. Not in one-long go.

And here a text with each line separated by 2 returns:

Hello.

This is an example text.

I like reading in paragraphs.

Not in one-long go.

And it's easier to navigate!

Why this behaviour? how do I modify it?

Use 2 Enter for paragraph. If you want line break, use 2 spaces at the end of the line. – nhahtdh Mar 10 '13 at 11:29

Either add 2 spaces at the end of the line

test<space><space>  
test

or add a <br> at the end of the line

test<br>
test

No. Line breaks are not paragraphs. – Arjan Mar 10 '13 at 11:34

No, @Gam, not for English text. Please read the link above. (And then try to read the same, with line breaks.) – Arjan Mar 10 '13 at 11:34
