How to force a blank line after signature

Hello everyone!

 

I'm trying to force a blank line after the "sent from Blackberry" signature. I know how to edit the signature, but I don't know how to make a blank line at the end.  When I hit the enter key, it just takes the cursor to the next field.

 

I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't figure it out.

 

TIA!

Re: How to force a blank line after signature

To what end would you want a blank line after your signature?

 

Are you wanting  to "add" something on a next line?  When it is sent along with your email the recipient sees it left justified at the bottom of your message.

 

I don't know if "spacing" after the end of the signature until it line feeds (if it even does) would accomplish what you want.  I don't know if there is a character limit to the sig.

Re: How to force a blank line after signature

I would like my sig to look like this:

 

----------------------------------------------

Sent from my BlackBerry on Sprint

----------------------------------------------

 

But I don't know how to do the line breaks to make this happen. I guess I'm looking for how to do a line break... not necessarily a blank line.

Re: How to force a blank line after signature

Okay, my curious nature forced me to try.

 

I went into email settings and played with using the hyphen and got it to form "line breaks" of a fashion.  Apparently there is no character count limitation (or one that I did not exceed).

 

You will have to tinker with it to get it so that it sends it as you want it but if you use a combination of hyphens and spaces you can get the signature with what you want.  I did not test if you can set it up in a dummy email text box and do a cut and paste.  I have found that paste operations generally work in a number of operations.

 

It is rather tedious as you have to try one, save it, send a test, go back in, try another, save/send and so on.

 

I, am, for myself, rather indifferent to what and how it reads although I can see the value of being able  to change it as desired.

Re: How to force a blank line after signature

Thank you. I had thought of doing it that way; but like you said -- it's pretty tedious.

 

Since it's not really that important, I'll just stick with it the way it is.

Re: How to force a blank line after signature

I wrote my signature as I wanted, using line breaks, I typed it up in memopad as I wanted it, then copied/pasted it into the signature field. Worked perfectly.

 

Or type it up in email on computer and send it to your BlackBerry, and copy/paste it from there.

 

Whichever is easiest or more convienent for you.
