[Drupal] Change CKEditor behaviour for line breaks (br or p)

Here is a little code snippet to be added in a .module file.

 * Implements hook_editor_js_settings_alter().
 * {@inheritdoc}
function MODULE_editor_js_settings_alter(array &$settings) {
  foreach ($settings['editor']['formats'] as $name => $value) {
    // Use 
instead of

on enter. // See: https://docs.ckeditor.com/ckeditor4/latest/api/CKEDITOR.html#property-ENTER_BR. // CKEditor natively converts double

on rendering. $settings['editor']['formats'][$name]['editorSettings']['enterMode'] = '2'; } }

Additional Information

  • Instructions made on Drupal 8.5.x.
  • Will break text align buttons in the CKEditor toolbar: Issue on Drupal.org
  • The default behaviour of CKEditor is the following:
    • Enter: inserts a paragraph directly in the WYSIWYG,
    • Shift + Enter: inserts a line break.
  • The new behaviour of CKEditor with the hook will be:
    • Enter: inserts a single line break (br),
    • 2 × Enter: inserts two line breaks which will be converted into a paragraph when rendered.
