Sending messages by Ctrl+Enter



  • Syrill

    >> Imagine sending a multi-line message early because of this, ugh.

    That's what is happening to me now :)

    I'm not saying it should be the only way for texting.
    I'm saying it should be an OPTION that I can turn on in settings.

  • Petey

    I need this, too. Everything else I use does this (or has an option to):

    • Gmail
    • Telegram
    • Jira
    • Fork (the git GUI that I use)

    I always forget to use shift+enter in Discord, making for lots of very short messages lol

    Please, please add this as an option!

  • Veta

    I miss this OPTION too. Even junior can commit this option, please, do this for a millions users, it will be nice!

  • Belyavin

    If you try to position yourself as an alternative for Skype, you should at least have not less features then it (and Skype has it as long as I can remember it).

  • darkpenguin

    This was actually THE reason I could not use Discord at all. If at least the client was libre software, someone would have fixed it long ago.

  • Dmitrii

    Please make it possible to send a message by Ctrl + Enter

    Сделайте пожалуйста возможность отправки сообщения по Ctrl+Enter

    S'il vous plaît activer l'envoi du message en utilisant Ctrl + Entrée

    Bitte erlauben Sie das Senden einer Nachricht mit Strg + Enter

    请按Ctrl + Enter发送消息

    This is such an essential feature, every other messenger has it, why not Discord? Leave Enter as the default and give us an option to use Ctrl + Enter instead. Having this feature would make Discord my preferred (primary) messenger.

    Please give us a switch to let us use Ctrl + Enter to send!

  • None

    add this option please!

  • Psittacus erithacus

    Have to add my voice to the chorus, this is a common enough setup in other apps and on different systems that it is a real shame that it isn't an option here.

  • Kirsan

    Really miss this option too.

  • evg-zhabotinsky

    Crazyleon Yes, that's exactly that I'm doing when sending more than a couple lines in Discord.
    Why? Because I'm bound to forget to press Shift when starting another paragraph, sending the unfinished message.
    Why would I forget that? Because almost literally everywhere else Enter starts a new paragraph, without requiring Shift.

    And very often Ctrl+Enter works as "submit", whether it sends a message in a chat, an e-mail, or a comment on code fragment on Bitbucket, or commits your changes in GIT.
    Worst case scenario, Ctrl+Enter does nothing or starts another paragraph, so I don't have to remember if it works in each specific app or website.

    Would I like to have the same convenient and consistent behavior in Discord too? Absolutely!
    Do I like having to remember to press Shift every time or to open an external text editor right away? Not really.

  • denexapp

    Same here. I use ctrl-enter everywhere: slack, telegram, vk and it's so uncomfortable to use shift enter instead. If this option will appear, this would be much enjoyable discord experience xd

  • Eaglecott

    It is really suprising to see the message being sent when I just wanted to make a new line.
    The message was not ready to be sent.

  • irvnriir

    it has been a year since, and still no change, even though the function is so essential .

  • Danil

    Nathan Riddle, dude, if it just so happens that most of the programs you use just so happened to use enter for message sending, it doesn't mean that most programs overall use it.

    Skype, telegram, all of the mail programs and mail websites, literally all the forums (including this one I'm writing right now), all of the social networks I use (you see: social networks you use are not the only one in the internet) — all of them use ctrl+enter to send a message.

    Youtube, by the way, also uses ctrl+enter for message sending. It's only live chat that is the other way around.

    So, no, shift+enter is not the only way every program uses for line break sending. And I don't care if all of these programs using ctrl+enter out there are chat programs of not: I really want to use the one uniform method of sending messages everywhere, regardless of if it's a chat or not.

    Also, imagine for a minute that discord would use ctrl+enter for message sending and wouldn't allow you to choose. Would you be annoyed? I sure hope not, why would you? Almost every program I use uses ctrl+enter, so I'm sure it must be comfortable for you too /s

    I guess, that's why most programs give user a choice to use enter of ctrl+enter. Well, except for Discord.


    Kirsan, I'm 20, and I haven't seen early days of the internet. It doesn't stop me from wanting to comfortably write long multi-line messages.

  • Alex Sharp

    Chill out guys. Discord is just a small startup after all. Can't expect much from it. Especially such an advanced feature like making Enter start a new line in the text-input box

  • aybiss

    So embarrassing to send half a message just because I use apostrophes and go a millimeter too far on the right of the keyboard.

  • Zanno

    I need to post in this thread another time to stress that I ABSOLUTELY NEED THIS FEATURE

    I type so fast and it's a completely natural rhythm that i literally cannot unlearn this behavior.

    I've been talking to a very close of my friend very often and it's starting to piss him but he doesn't understand this completely ingrained in how I type and I honestly would change the hotkey if I was able


    The entire community seems to be complaining about this.

  • Danil

    It's ridiculous.

    I was going to switch to Discord from Skype, since it essentially died, but really, I'm used to send massages with Ctrl+Enter, and without it I may as well use Skype 8, it won't be much worse.

  • Crazyleon

    evg-zhabotinsky Absolutely agree

    Extra bump for implementation

  • tossha

    Can't believe this is still not implemented.

  • rumraisin

    We claim that Discord should offer CHOICES of shortcut key for sending messages.
    Some people are sending messages with only Enter key but others are sending with Ctrl + Enter key like me.

    What Nathan Riddle claim is correct but some chatting services are offering us choices to send messages with Ctrl + Enter key, for example, Slack and LINE.

  • Shumway

    Easy request was made "2 years ago" and nothing changed... Seems, they're really care about their users...

    Please add this choice, I spent a lot of time digging in settings and reading manual, I coudln't imagine that there is no this simple setting.

  • rumraisin

    I strongly agree with Syrill's opinion.
    Switching option that enable us to post with only Enter key or combination of Command/Ctrl/Shift and Enter key is necessary.

  • Yves

    Bump.  I'm asking friends to contact me on Slack nowadays; too annoyed at Discord because of that.

  • rumraisin

    I think it is not so difficult to implement the function.
    Wumpus, you think so too, right?

  • DeltaIII

    +1 On this.

    In general I find the biggest issue with not "Enter" be a normal new line is that you end up with people spamming lots of one or two line messages, that often get interrupted part way through, instead of one coherent message.

    It makes stuff like reactions to messages weird too.

  • Глойнус Алеос

    Поддерживаю. Очень не хватает такой настройки. Порой случайно отправляешь рваные сообщения или ловишь чувство ложной отправки.

  • Jodok ツ

    Please make it happen!!!

    even in this command box "Enter" makes a new line and dosen't send the comment!
