hi! just installed skype on my new [and first ever] macbook pro and there are a couple of preferences that i was using in skype for pc that i can't find in mac preferences.
this one is driving me crazy, so please put me out of my misery....
when enter is pressed it sends the instant message, how do i stop this and make pressing enter insert a line break.
if it helps... in skype for pc the preference can be changed in tools> options> im settings> pressing enter will...
Solved! Go to Solution.
no way... !!!!
thx mkichaa, no wonder i couldn't find a preference option anywhere...
this is crazy... is there a mac keyboard shortcut, or any shortcut, work around for inserting a line break. surely all you skype mac users don't run all there sentences / paragraphs together...?
thx again mkichaa, much appreciate the quick response.

i created a document in text edit, put a return in and copy it... it is not ideal but it works very well! i just keep it handy and copy it when i know i will be doing some heavy skypeing and hit paste when i need the return...
guaranteed to work! your message will still send when you hit enter... but it will include your paragraphs properly formatted! :]
mkichaa, you reply, "Not an option on the Mac version" is incorrect or perhaps no longer correct.
The solution is to hold down the Shift key and press the Enter key. Works on Mac OS X and in the iOS versions of Skype.
Looks like they have removed the ability to configure this as a setting in skype version 6 for windows. How incredibly stupid to remove this as a setting.
How blasted stupid to leave or remove the option re "Enter inserts a line break"...
At least the "drop a line" on enter workd here!!!
