Allow Multiple Paragraphs in Suggested Changes

I don't know how many times I've been in the process of writing comments on a suggested translation change when I've either accidentally hit the Enter key or intentionally hit it hoping to start a new paragraph. What happens in this situation is that the (unfinished) comments are attached to the suggested edit, and the dialog box is immediately closed! Nooooo! While in the edit pane, can't the Enter key be bound to a carriage return rather than the post button? (and, as a slight aside, I notice as I type this, the Enter key in this "post insight" dialog box appears to do nothing at all, but two or three days ago, while posting a different insight, it allowed me to enter new paragraphs just like one would it expect. Did something change?)

Not sure if it'll work, but try tapping shift+Enter when you want to start a new paragraph. I find it works in most cases, but I haven't tested it here.

That is a really excellent idea! I'm going to try that at the next opportunity. Thanks!

I had high hopes for the SHIFT+ENTER trick, but I'm afraid it didn't work here. ALT+ENTER and CTRL+ENTER (hey! I was grasping at straws!) also failed me.
