(Although posting the above statement was instantaneous, so I owe it an apology!)

It seems that I can enter a new line with a bit of jiggery pokery (turning off all the predictive irritations), but still can't put a space between paragraphs, except by going back and adding another new line afterwards as an edit.
It won't accept a double enter as a space between paragraphs, but formats just like the above new line.

I seem to remember that there was an option on my phone about using the return as a carriage return. I set it up when I first got it and not touched it since.
Don't ask me what flavour of biscuit it is though.

However, IMO, it is useless for heavy typing. I use swipe and that helps with the typing speed, so long as Iyou watch out for it picking entirely the wrong wood [sic] or two. You just can't beat a decent keyboard if you want to string more than a sentence together. I am also a mean shit, so I won't spend more than a £100 or so on one, because I tend to drop them and crack the bloody screens.
@Jeremy, BTW if you have a at the bottom RHS of the keyboard, then try selecting the capitals shift mode, then the smiley is replaced by a CR key.

Another issue I hope is resolved is that it would lose everything typed to the forum input box if I left the page to look something up or copy a link; sometimes auto save rescued this, sometimes not.
All appears smoother so far, fingers crossed it stays that way!
My wife got me a case with keyboard, but it requires a mini USB adaptor that I don't yet possess. It would be great to have a "real keyboard" so this adaptor might be my next purchase :-)

5-star reviews, so must be OK.

I'm currently looking at getting a Bluetooth keyboard, as that seems the better option.

Now my new laptop is 5 weeks old I have just about got enough fag ash and marmalade on the keyboard to make it usable.
I suppose this is one way of making a tablet typeable, take it to the pub, spill beer on it, rub some crisps in, maybe some chocolate, and not give a hoot about that you say.

The most 'tactile' one of the three I've tried and small enough (which doesn't affect its ease of use) to fit into the case I use...
(And yes, that is a paper diary on the left because it's so much easier to flip through when you're trying to - and I'm going to get some grief for this - synchronize your schedule with someone else.)
One problem with the case was the iPad keeps sliding down, particularly if you're using it in landscape mode. Solved by using self-adhesive velcro strip on the back of the iPad and inside of the case and then putting a piece of cardboard between the case and the iPad, sliding the iPad in and then removing the carboard to allow the velcro to meet. It works. And to remove the iPad just push a piece of cardboard back in and slide the iPad out.
