I'm trying to add a new line in checkbox note items in Google Keep app using Android Keyboard (AOSP); but instead, a new checkbox item is added when I do :

  • double tap on shift key → enter
  • drag from shift key to enter
  • long press enter key

I can accomplish the purpose nicely in PC (Google Keep Chrome Extension) with Shift+Enter combination; but how to in Android !?

This is not possible at the moment. Only thing I can think of is to use a clipboard app and copy-paste a soft linebreak into Google keep.

Android (AOSP) keyboard: When you hit the shift key (the one for the capital letters), automatically the key for the smiley (that is at the bottom right) becomes the key to start a new line.

SwiftKey Keyboard: (when keyboard of the letters (alphabetical)). (from the keyboard of the letters .(a b c ..) simply hold for a moment the key for the smiley, at the bottom right.

  • This will enter a new item, not a soft linebreak. – Ben Dec 9 '17 at 11:41
