I am using a Mac machine. I asked a question, and then, someone answered it.

I clicked "Edit" to add a comment, and I would like to press Enter to go to a new line, but doing so submitted my comment and ended the edit instead.

I assume you clicked "Add comment", not "Edit"? – balpha Feb 10 '11 at 18:13
I also assume this is the comment in question? – balpha Feb 10 '11 at 18:19
Is it normal Mac behavior to edit a text field by pressing Enter? – Michael Mrozek Feb 10 '11 at 21:31
I typed this first. Then I hit shift+enter. Again here. – Mystery Dec 28 '11 at 0:29

You can use shfit+enter to go to a new line in a comment, but either way it will remove new lines. This is by design.

And after I submitted it:

And FYI, I clicked enter to submit it after I was done typing.
