As Designed Enter key does not work when tagging a user

    How to replicate:

    Start to tag someone with the @ key. Once you've entered the name of that person, and the menu pops up with users to select, press enter and it will leave a space instead of a new line.



    Tested on Google Chrome. Not sure about the other browsers.

    This has actually been around since tagging was implemented. I just thought it was intentional, but we'll see. :)

    It is intentional. I definitely wouldn't want a new line appearing there...

    Tagging users is generally supposed to be done inline so although sometimes you might want to do:


    Thanks for your message

    More often than not you might be saying something like:

    @oman posted a good message today.

    The difference is, certainly on the second scenario, I generally use the keyboard to select the name of the person I'm tagging and then hit enter to confirm. So, I definitely wouldn't want a new line to appear as a result of me using enter to select a user.

    If the autocomplete menu is open, up/down/enter will always perform the action on it.
