Sending IM with Enter key?

Hi Up until recently, I could always send an instant message in the app using the Enter key on the keyboard. Since recently, when I press the enter key, I get a new line, and I have to press the send button. How can I change that back??? Especially when using an external keyboard, it is absolutely stupid, to always take the hands off the keyboard and touch the screen. Like this, the app is completely useless!! Any help highly appreciated!

Same problem here. Why dont skype keep shift+enter as new line option and make enter do what it should do-send the message.

Same here. Please sort this out, Mr Skype. As suggested above, shift+return would make sense as the way to start a new line.

Just want to add another person who would love to see this changed! I would much rather be able to hit enter to send my message than to get a new line. I send messages a WHOLE lot more often than I need a new line of text in a current message. Please make this more useful!

as someone who uses their ipad with skype with a keyboard multiple hours out of every work day i can say this is extremely annoying.
