• Numeric Pad Enter Key & Text Box


    I added a Text Box from the Insert tab on a worksheet.  Using the numeric keypad I was entering values into the text box – or so I thought.  When I looked at what I had entered, all the characters were on a single line.

    The numeric pad Enter key was not “returning” me to a new line when pressed.  If I hit the Alpha keyboard Enter key a new line was generated.

    I opened Word, inserted a Text Box, started entering characters, and each time the numeric pad Enter key was pushed a new line was seen.

    I went to a co-worker and saw the same behavior on their machine where the numeric pad Enter key does nothing when working in a text box in Excel.

    The numeric keypad works just fine on a worksheet.  I am old but don’t remember seeing this before.
