Enable Enter to send

By default, the Enter (or Return) key adds a new line to a message, and Ctrl+Enter sends the message.

This is convenient for typing multi-line messages, which are more common in Zulip than in most other chat products. However, you can also configure Zulip so that Enter sends the message.

  1. Start composing a new message or reply.

  2. Click Press Enter to send at the bottom of the compose box.

Note that Shift+Enter always adds a new line, regardless of whether Enter to send is enabled. The full table is below.
