[Solved] Keyboard Shortcuts

Hello everyone, Good Day! and happy holidays.
I'm new to open office, although I have heard this along time ago way back 2001. My question is, Is there an equivalent keyboard shortcut for open office in relation to MSOffice? I am using OpenOffice Calc, in MSOffice I usually use Alt+Enter to encode multiple lines in one Cell, I try in OO_Calc but it will not move on the next line, instead I used the space bar to move the cursor to the next line. I hope there is an keybrd shortcut on this.

Hoping for a positive response on this.

Thank you,
Noli

Double-click the cell text, so you get the editing cursor in the cell itself (not on the formula entry bar. Now, when you want to enter a line break, type Ctrl+Enter.

Thank you for the reply, I try it and it works, instead of ALT+Enter(MSExcel), its' Ctrl+Enter(OpenOfficeCalc).

Thank's acknak.

If you are working with strings, be aware that soft line breaks are sometimes evaluated as spaces - issue 83666.

Also, just so you know, in Writer a soft line break is Shift+Enter.

Edit: corrected terminology
