To create a paragraph, press shift+enter (in both theory and exercises). In the resulting HTML (which can be accessed by clicking the

To create a linebreak, press enter (also both in theory and exercises).. In the resulting HTML, you will see that the editor inserts linebreak (
Inside LaTeX equations, you can also use linebreaks to format the source, but you can’t use paragraphs.
