I have added a card to a board in Trello, and now need to edit the text on that card.
How do I insert a carriage return? I have tried the following:
- Shift + Return
- Ctrl + Return
- Shift + Ctrl + Return.
None of these key combinations work.

In Trello, card titles are single line, i.e. they can't contain a carriage return. (It's similar to the subject line of an email)
If you'd like to include multi-line content, you can do that in the card description, or in a comment (using shift + enter)
While it's not possible to put in line breaks, since the columns / cards are fixed width, you can easily work around this limitation by just adding some white space until you fill in the line and the text naturally jumps to the next line.
Normal spaces will get ignored though, so go for something like ideographic space (just grab it from inside these square brackets): ] [ or go hunting on Wikipedia.
There seems to be no way to type a newline in a card’s title. However, as others said, you can paste one in. You may also paste in paragraph breaks, carriage returns, etc.
So, you can record carriage returns in Trello, but you can’t see them on the cards’ rectos. Still, I did experience some inconsistencies where Trello decided to really replace newlines with ordinary spaces, so use at your own risk.
'_____________________________ " was the only thing I could do that would work. Of course if they change card width, it won't work anymore.
