Allow hitting enter to add a new paragraph in conversations
Currently, hitting enter on a conversation entry in the Teams app on my PC submits it.
However, this is a problem for two reasons:
If you are having an in depth conversation, not being able to have paragraphs bunches everything together and makes it hard to read.
You can't write a list (like this one)
If you are a touch typist, you are constantly having to edit your posts because you instinctively hit enter. This wastes time.
I accept some messages and users want a quick hit enter but maybe you could add the ability to use CTRL Enter like on Excel as an option for those who want to insert a line?
You wonder why a company like Microsoft has to re-invent a wheel it designed originally.
They created another messaging platform called "Outlook", when creating a message there you use Enter to create a new line and Ctrl + Enter to send a message.
Having spent many years using this, why expect users to adapt to a different key combination for a new program?
If you really must do this, then at least make the 'mimic outlook' option available via a simple check box.
Is this fixed yet? Needs a solution
Use the format button. This opens a dialog box which allows the seting of a subject for the conversation, as well as setting the Enter key to function as you would expect it to ;-)
It also allows you to set diffferent text styles/sizes/colours, insert tables etc. Only just discovered this, thanks to this link: https://camerondwyer.com/2018/12/22/do-you-hit-enter-in-microsoft-teams-for-a-new-line-and-accidentally-post-partial-message-try-this-hack/
Great to have Shift+Enter as a tactical solution. The strategic solution should be to allow the option for the user to select the function of the Return key in a post; Similar to the same option already available in Excel when entering/editing a cell.
Agree with Hayden N. Needs user setting where enter can just be used as a new paragraph

Teams supports SHIFT+Enter for newline/carriage return. It would still be helpful to turn off the setting wherein ENTER submits the form.
