If you create a custom form and the Auto Tab option is set in a field, the RETURN key has no effect on that field once the form is installed in Mail. This limitation is necessary for fields such as the Subject, which are only one-line text fields.


If the RETURN key does not advance to a new line in a scrollable field, do the following:

  1. Open the form in the Forms Designer.
  2. Select the field tool and double-click on the field in question.
  3. Make sure that the Auto Tab option is not selected.
  4. Compile and reinstall the form.
