Re: how to go to next line on blackberry z10 when composing sms

At this point there is no next line or return key in SMS or BBM, a lot of people have asked for it. It exists on all the other apps for writing, but not on SMS and BBM.  Hopefully BB releases this simple fix for the messaging..

Re: how to go to next line on blackberry z10 when composing sms

Hi, All

  I'm sure there are many of us that miss and need the Next Line for both the SMS and BBM..  I have confidence that BB is listening and are aware.

  Might we remember that in developing a whole new OS, and timeline deadlines. I would think wih backs against the wall to get the BB10 out. Not to cause more delays.. They decided to fix it down the road. The least important issues to be addressed at a later time, to meet deadlines..

   Now like everyone else we all have opinions, this is my best guess. Hope to see this in a future Update to the OS

 

Enjoy

Ric

ps. If you ever have looked into what it takes to write a OS program you will appreciate all that Works! Smiley Happy

Yes, this should be configurabe.

 

Some people are prefering to sent out a message fast (as it behaves currently) and others prefer well formated text.

 

Personally I'm using ClipMan to copy a text I've began writing to the Clipboard, modify it in ClipMan and copy it back to the SMS message including the line break. But every small Note App could do this job.

 

It just depends how ofter you need a line break in a SMS or BBM message. Smiley Happy

Re: how to go to next line on blackberry z10 when composing sms

Just have to change ur text settings. Just follow the foll steps:


Go in to Hub > Settings > Text Messages > Use enter to send > Toggle that "Off"

Now in text messages, whenever you'll press enter it will be a line break

Hope that helps.

Also:

 

For Text and BBM:

Settings - Language and Input - Prediction and Correction - Word Substitution - Add Shortcut - Typing - "cr" (carriage return/Enter) - New word or phrase - press (carriage return/Enter) key - Save

 

At the end of a sentence press spacebar then type "cr", then spacebar.

 

One can opt for any letter combination, I just prefer "cr".
