Memo Field in contact layout doesn't accept ENTER command

When customizing a contact layout, I add a memo field with capability of writing several lines. Now each time I need a new line, and hit the enter key, the cursor jumps from my memo field, to another field, as if pressing the tab key.
I tried the enter stop enable, in the properties of the memo field to no avail.
I used to be able to do this with previous versions of Act.
Can anyone help?
 
Thanks

Memo fields have always been this way. They can only handle text (up to 32K characters) with nothing special including carrage returns

control enter will give you a carriage return in memo fields

Re: use control enter

Besides using control enter do you know of other commands (bold, underline etc...)?
