The description field on a Sage 50 invoice can hold up to 160 characters. But if you need a description that long, there is a good chance you’ll want to start a new line of text within that description. The enter key will move you to the next field. So how do you start a new line? Ctrl+Enter is the answer. Holding down the Ctrl key while pressing Enter will insert a line break so you can start a new line of text within the same description field. The same key combination works in the invoice note and on other forms such as purchase order or checks, as well as in the Description For Sales/Purchases field of Maintain Inventory Items.

Another use for Ctrl+Enter is to add space between line items. At the end of the description, type Ctrl+Enter twice. Then you will end up with a blank line on your invoice before the next line.
