@VishwaMurthy,

 

There is currently no enter key when typing texts. It has been requested by many.. maybe in another software update. Smiley Wink

Re: Enter hard return in SMS (possibly solved)

Hi,

 

on my Q10 I solved it by:

 

  • press and hold "alt" until locked
  • press "enter" to insert line break(s)
  • press "alt" again to exit the lock mode

Please feel free to comment and let me know if it also work for the Z10

Hi,
Z10 doesn't have a physical keyboard - so no "alt". However if you compose your text with no recipients listed, you still have your return key available (you can add them when you are done typing).

Re: Enter hard return in SMS (possibly solved) +++UPDATE+++

Hi,

 

with BB OS 10.2 on the Q10 the way to enter a new line in SMS, BBm or Whatsapp has changed.

 

No longer the need to press and hold "Alt" until locked and then Enter.

With 10.2 you simply have to press "Shift" + "Enter" to add a new line.

 

In SMS in addition, you can now define in the settings if "Enter" should insert a line break or send the SMS.

 

However, as not all apps have this setting and to avoid treating SMS different from Whatsapp, I left the setting for SMS that Enter sends the SMS and inserting a new line in all apps, including SMS I do via Shift + Enter.

 

best regards


Alex

A quick note to Clellen:

The 'Alt' is the arrow you use to capitalize a letter.
