Not a case of a known problem, the memo field was designed to work that way (Ctrl+Enter for a new line) since ACT2006 V7.

It so happens that I have an install of ACT! 17.2 Premium and the memo filed requires Ctrl+Enter for a new line.

The Kb specifies that using Ctrl+Enter for new line in memo fields is the way it's designed to work. It suggests a workaround but that's not a design change. I have a personal database in ACT! with a memo field that I have used in all versions of ACT! since version 8 and the memo field has always used Ctrl+Enter for a new line. Because the Enter alone can be used for field navigation, don't expect it to change.

Like it or not the Memo field has always worked this way. (Also tested on V16, 17,18 & 19.)

 

In the big scheme of things It's no great hardship to hit the Ctrl key. Wish all ACT oddities were so easy to resolve!

 

Thanks for your suggestion on Linked in by the way.

First please stop shouting. The workaround in the KB involved an undocumented feature and as such is unsupported, Because the ACT! memo fields are documented to use CTRL+Enter for a new line there is nothing ro fix. You could request a feature change for a future version but I doubt it would happen because I can see valid reasons for the memo field to behave the way it does.
