Since I upgraded to v18 I have had an issue when I am typing in a topic note and hit enter, it creates the new line but the cursor stays on the original line. I have to arrow down to get to the new line. I even got a new laptop a couple weeks aqo, and it still happens. Anyone else experience this?

Odd behaviour which I can't replicate.  My norm is Enter "fixes" the text another Enter inserts a new topic at the same level.

I have always used Shift-Enter to create new lines in a topic.

I also looked in the Options for something that changes the Enter key function but couldn't spot it.  Take a look yourself just in case I missed it.

I did spot the "On paste, use formatting from original box" which I have now cleared. That's bugged me a few times when I get the strange formatting of the cut/copy document in my map.

I cannot replicate that behaviour either.

But I do remember that there maybe a difference between the language of your Windows OS and the keyboard setting on your laptop.

I have a DUTCH (the Netherlands) OS
and my keyboard is set to USA (Verenigde Staten, Internationaal )

You may try to change the keyboard settings on your system just for a test.
