How do I use Karabiner to take certain key presses (shift+enter, for example) and give me a new line character. Note that I do NOT want to just replicate return_or_enter, as enter is a very overloaded key that can sometimes execute drastic behavior. I want to behave like it is pasting in a new line character.

Somewhat similar to this question here (Using Karabiner for multi key to multi key remapping) except I am trying to figure out how to replicate a single character rather than multiple characters, to solve the same problem.

  • Have you tried posting this as an issue in Github, as well as asking your question on the Karabiner Google Group? I encourage you to do those steps as you're more likely to find people there who have the specific knowledge to help. Here are the URLs: pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/contact.html

    You can use macOS's own text replacer to make a new line, by simply pasting one in & giving it a command. i.stack.imgur.com/jms5t.png You can't see it, of course, but it's a new line.
