I use a Bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. When I am sending messages through the Messages app, the enter key does not initiate a "send" the way I expect (it, instead, just returns down to the next line). Is there a way to make the "enter" key send the message instead of dropping down to the next line? Some magic key combination perhaps?
On you iPad. Go into "Settings" then navigate to "General", go to "Keyboard" option. Select the "International Keyboards" option and change your "Hardware Keyboard layout" from "U.S." to "U.S.International-PC". Your RETURN/ENTER Key will now send messages on you messaging Apps.
There is not a way to do that. The enter/return key does the same action as hitting the button in the lower-right of the keyboard. In some apps, it sends a message or performs an action; in others, it generates a newline. Messages does the latter. You have to use the Send button on the screen to send a message.
Hit Enter while Cmd is in action.
On a computer sometimes command+enter is used for submitting content while enter is used for newlines. I doubt it is recognized by Messages on iPad but it's worth a try.
