Lightning: When inline editing an Area Text Field - hitting "enter" behavior is different than manual edit or Classic behavior
|Knowledge Article Number||000233272|
|Description||In Lightning Experience, when inline editing an Area Text Field, hitting "enter" twice will automatically save your change on the record.
Hitting "Enter" once takes users to a highlighted view of the field (cursor leaves the text box):
When manually editing in Lightning OR when editing in any way in Aloha Classic, hitting enter will take you to the next line of the text box:
|Resolution||This is working as designed.
The intention for inline editing in combination with Lightning is meant for very efficient and quick saves. Hitting "enter" twice will save a record quickly when users are done entering values/text.
Workaround: For users who wish to proceed to the next line without saving the record, shift+enter can be used instead.
