Carrier return with message node ?

Vincent DELBEAU 7 years ago updated by Praveen Srinivasaiah (Admin) 7 years ago 9


I'm using node api to get some data from external API, it's OK now :)

Now I need to display them in message node but it's not easy to arrange all the data in a single message...

Is it possible to use a carrier return to go to the next line without adding a new message ?
Thanks !


Hi Vincent. No, there isn't a way to do an automated "carriage return" or create an automatic "next" message box.

One thing to keep in mind is if you have a ton of content coming to the reader/user all at once, it will be difficult to keep up with the message flow. It will scroll up the screen quite quickly. You might want to display things in smaller chunks for better readability. (This all depends on what you are presenting, of course.)

Hi Michael,

I'm using API to retrieve data so it will display between 5 and 10 items per request.

I understand that Sequel is more oriented for storytelling than bot as his first use.
I will find another way to display my data. Thanks ! ;)

Hi Vincent,

Try control key + enter key. I think this is what you are looking for.



Hi Mitesh,
I tried the CTLR+ENTER keys and nothing happens.

I'm using Chrome v51.0.2704.103 m.
Thanks ;)


Hi Vincent,

Were you using "Control Enter" in the specific message window? Pls see image below.

HI Omar,

I tried with Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome and I can't use carrier return.

Another user could test please?

It seems to work on Macs, but not on PCs. I've made a note of it for our development team - are you on a Mac, PC, or UNIX?



It's working now ! :) (Windows 8/Chrome)
Thanks a lot!
