By updating in5 to 3.7.8, I found an issue with missing "soft line break" within paragraph text (SHIFT+RETURN).

Regular line break works as expected, but it apply paragraph space, so I have always use "softLineBreak" (SHIFT+RETURN) and in5 transfer it to html as "<br>".

PS: I really appreciate your efforts to make in5 better and better, but please also take care, about excellent in5 legacy functionalities. You can imagine in5 users headache, while dealing with issues caused by in5 update functionality details.

I made a test file and can see what you mean. I'm having our developer take a look. I'll let you know when I find out more.

Thanks Myra,

...as tomorrow I need to in5-export publication to be published, I will manually recheck   all "indd SoftLineBreaks" and insert "<br>" into html.

Uffff... quite annoying job and I really hope your developers will resolve this ASAP.
When I tested it, I did notice that exporting with text rendering set to Images or to SVG honors the soft returns. So, you could use either of those settings or try reverting to 3.7.7.

Hey Myra,

As most of us are using in5 as "export to html plugin", that means also to export "InDesign text" as "html text". ...otherwise we can use any image/svg exporting tool and present html pages as "svg" or "images".

Meanwhile, here is an example screenshoot from indesign:

Thank you for the additional information.
The development team is working on a fix to get it released ASAP.

Dear in5 team,

What to say... you are amazing!

While I was thinking, how to prepare my team to dal with missing "soft returns" and most of all, to prepare client to excuse us if we miss something during manual adjustments...

The update came just in time and can confirm, paragraph text "soft returns - <br>" is back.

Many thanks for prompt response! 

...suppose also from many developers using in5 as InDesign magic touch.

Thank you for the kind words. The team definitely worked at record speed. smiley
