The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh versions 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1


In Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, the New Paragraph With Same Style command (COMMAND+RETURN) inserts a paragraph mark after the insertion point. The new paragraph has the same style as the preceding paragraph even if a different style was specified for Next Style when the paragraph style was defined.

Note: To assign new key commands or add the New Paragraph With Same Style command to a menu, use the Commands dialog box. (In Word version 4.0 choose Commands from the Edit menu. In Word versions 5.0 or 5.1, choose Commands from the Tools menu.)


When you define a style, you can specify a Next Style. Each time you press RETURN after a style that has a Next Style specified, the style you selected for the next style will be applied. The New Paragraph With Same Style command is a way to override the Next Style option.

To define styles:

In Word versions 5.0 and 5.1, choose Style from the Format menu.

In Word version 4.0, choose Define Styles from the Format menu.
