With body text, keying a “hard return” automatically inserts space between paragraphs. This is achieved by simply typing the “return” key. These first two paragraphs are separated by a hard return.
If additional space is not wanted, and you would like to differentiate paragraphs with an indentation, you should use a “soft return.” A soft return adds a line break without additional space. To add a soft return, type “shift-return.” These second and third paragraphs are separated with a soft return.
This paragraph starts with an indentation. Since text styles do not include indentations, this must be achieved by typing word spaces. This paragraph starts with 8 word spaces. The “tab” key will not work as a way to add space. You could, however, cut and paste the word spaces from one paragraph and paste it at the beginning of each new paragraph.

Two different type levels cannot be specified within the same paragraph – rhere must be a hard return separating different levels. However, one work-around is to create subheads by typing words in all caps and adding a word space between each character (add two spaces between words).

Below is an example of a block quote. This is a special call-out style in which all type is indented. A block quote is specified in the type editor, by clicking the “quotation mark” icon. A heavy vertical line may appear to the left of a block quote while in editing mode, however the line will not appear when completed.
