Impossible to go to the next line in a multiple line textbox because Enter key triggers the "Next" button.

Is there a workaround for this?

I'm a developer at Cognito Forms. Unfortunately, there is a problem with our keyboard navigation logic for multi-page forms as it relates to multi line textbox. We are currently working hard on our localization support release that will include a fix for this issue. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Most of the time, you can use the Alt+Enter (like in Excel) or Ctrl key to go to the next line instead of going to the next page.

  • Hi, thanks. True that Alt/Ctrl+Enter won't trigger the Next button, but it won't insert a line break neither (using Firefox 35.0.1).
