    This might seem like a really simple question but how do you join two paragraphs on a Mac? On a Windows PC using any word processing app - you can simply use the "delete" button to "bring up" one paragraph with another but what is the equivalent on a Mac?

    The same thing. The "delete" button.

    Delete removes anything to the left of the cursor. fn+delete removes everything to the right of the cursor and control+delete removes word by word. Finally, command+delete removes the entire line.

    Read my first reply.

    Also, this is in the wrong forum. You're talking about Mac. This is iOS.

    Conceptualising the task as 'bringing two paragraphs together' is a bit strange. AFAIK there are no commands to 'bring two paragraphs together'. You're better of thinking about it as deleting text - including line breaks and white space - either to the left or right of your text cursor, both of which can achieve your goal depending on where your text cursor is. Surely AbSoLuTc's answer is sufficient.
