Text Box does not support CR/LF

We have just upgraded to ACT 2012. In our old Version 8, a custom text box into which we enter free text supported the Enter key to force a new line. In the 2012 version, this key seem to be ignored. Is there something I need to do to get the old behavior back?

To force a carriage return in a Memo field, you would press Ctrl+Enter

 ... And yet I have some memo fields that allow me to create a new line with the enter key (and some that don't).  Probably older memo fields that retained their original characteristics.

John.... would be interested if you can test if the difference is related to the Layout or the field.

As the Layout properties determine if the field has a function for Enter/Tab, I think that might be causing the difference you're seeing
