Enable or disable Press Enter to send

Zulip supports configuring whether the Enter key on your keyboard sends a message that you are composing.

By default, the Enter (or Return) key simply adds a blank line to the message when the Press Enter to send checkbox is disabled. This is great if you want to write multi-line messages that include blank lines, which is much more common in Zulip than in other chat products. In this default configuration, you can send a message from the keyboard with Ctrl+Enter.

However, if you check the Press Enter to send checkbox in the compose box, Zulip sends your message when you press Enter (or Return) on your keyboard, and Ctrl+Enter will produce a newline.

Whether or not the Press Enter to send option is enabled, pressing Shift + Enter inserts a new line in your message.
