line feed versus carriage return

Howdy all,

One of the first things I had done many years ago to customize Xywrite 3.55
was to create an alternative carriage return. When hitting the enter key you
normally get a hard return in conjunction with paragraph indents. I had set
up the alternative carriage return using the shift-enter key combinationm,
which gave me a hard return without any indents.

In changing to a new printer recently, I replaced my printer driver file. I
had thought I had transferred over all of my customizations from the old
printer driver file into the new one, but have now found that the
alternative carriage return no longer works.

I had learned this little trick from Herb Tyson's "Xywrite Revealed," which
I unfortunately no longer have access to. My memory is that it was simply
and easy to do, but I can't remember what the trick was. Nor can I find it
in my old printer drive file, my startup.int file, or my keyboard file. The
keyboard file has the line feed character, ASCII character #10, assigned to
the shift-enter key, but when I hit this combination now all that happens is
the text insertion of ASCII character 17. No hard carriage return is
inserted, however.

Does any know how to reactivate this function?
