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.

Enable Enter to send

  1. Open the compose box.

  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.
