What would be the easiest way to allow me to send Shift+Enter to Facebook comment field from my Nexus 10 running Android 4.2 JellyBean, to write multi-paragraph comments?

The built-in keyboard doesn't seem to be able to do this.

  • Do you mean the Facebook app or website? – Timo Schwarzer Nov 4 '14 at 20:11
  • @TimoS Website, but I think this issue has been fixed. I'll have to check later. – Ilari Kajaste Nov 4 '14 at 21:00

    In the Facebook app you can write multiline-comments. At the wen you can try to tap and hold the submit key on your android-keyboard. There are sometimes some extra options. – Timo Schwarzer Nov 4 '14 at 22:19
  • Isn't there an option to defer sending messages on pressing Enter? As seen here. – dantis Dec 6 '14 at 11:16

The Google keyboard has a "newline" key (looks like an arrow with a 90 degree angle) that appears only when you enter "shift" mode (eg when you want to key in a capital letter). In this mode, the emoji smiley face key changes to a newline key.

On some ROMs, you can set an option to change between the emoji key and the newline (aka enter) key, from within the messaging app settings, under "Soft keyboard type".

I would assume Hacker's Keyboard is capable of sending shift-enters.
