Memo Fields

Small but annoying problem:   I have Memo fields in my Contact Layout & I can do a "carrier return" to start a note on a new line.  I can't do this in my Memo field in Opportunities -- I have to space over to the next line.  Any reason why?

Re: Memo Fields

Hello Jillian,
To go to the next line in a Memo field, you would press Ctrl+Enter. If this is not working, then verify that the field is actually a Memo-type field and not a Character field.

Ctrl+Enter does it!  I now won't get annoyed when I'm entering my notes.  Thank you! -- Jillian

Re: Memo Fields

By the way it's Shift+Enter in ACT! for Windows.

Re: Memo Fields

Shift+Enter does not work for me (ACT 2012 SP1). Have to use Ctrl+Enter. May be be O/S or keyboard driver specific.

Re: Memo Fields

Just checked APFW (internet access) and it's Shift+enter. Ctrl+enter doesn't work.

Re: Memo Fields

BTW, you can get just the Enter button to work in Memo fields by removing all Enter stops in the layout and using only Tab stops. Applies to both Web and Windows.

Re: Memo Fields

Grieg,

Just checked my Opportunities layout, & I do not have any Enter stops set -- only Tab stops.

Re: Memo Fields

The Enter stops may not be immediately visible - did you clear them and save the layout?
