I am editing a map in Google Maps Engine Lite and when I add a marker and description, it doesn't let me make a new line. Enter saves what I wrote, and Shift + Enter and Ctrl + Enter don't work.

This question has stumped me for a while and finally I found a solution on the official Google forum. The solution is that you need to press Alt + Enter.

Update: Ctrl + Enter seems to work now as well.


@Ynhockey is correct, alt + enter gives a full paragraph break (2 lines).

For a single line break (next line), press Alt + Command + Enter
