Lightroom: Issue adding line-wrap to text using identity plate in Print module

This request pertains to Lightroom 3.4.1...In the Print module to add text, I click the "Identity Plate" and start typing my text...the problem comes when I want to skip a line or wrap to the next line. In Scott Kelby's book "Lightroom 3", page 340, paragraph titled "Step One" it says to ."...press Alt-Enter twice to move down two lines." This is for a PC. For MAC it says "...press Option-Return" I contacted NAPP about this and they say it is a bug that Adobe needs to fix for PC users (apparently it does work for MAC users but not for PC users). Can you please fix this or tell me if there is a work-around to the problem. I really need to add more than one line of text when printing my images using Lightroom3. Thank you.

Lightroom CC2015.12/6.12 was released today and should address this issue.  Please update your Lightroom to the latest version and let us know if you continue to see the issue. Thank you for your patience.

I am confused regarding this update. I have latest version LR with CC2015.10.1, how do I get 2015.12/6.12? I have no option to update my present CC version when I check for updates and would very much like to be able to have 2 or more lines in the print module nameplate box

The CC update mechanism is unreliable. You can manually download 2015.12 from here:

I reinstalled LR from the link and now version is Lightroom version:  CC 2015 [1014445]....Does this seem correct?
I think I must first uninstall previous ver.? Thereby losing all my plugins etc.?

Sounds like you downloaded CC 2015  instead of the CC 2015.12 update (which updates CC 2015 to CC 2015.12).  This is what you want to download:

OK - I have it now. Was able to add second line to nameplate by using cut and paste from a word document. Thank you

Yes, this should be made to work on Windows too.

As a workaround, copy some text including a line break from Notepad, and paste that in. The line break often works.

Adobe apparently wants its Windows users to look elsewhere for support as they seem to want to make Windows a second class OS to Apple. Why haven't they fixed tis slight of Windows users in the past 4 years?
I'm a full Creative Cloud Windows user but the support from On1's Photo 10 is calling more and more every day that Adobe ignores Windows.

Added note:
Since PC support still is second to MAC, PC users should look seriously at On1 Software's On1 Photo Raw. It is and excellent editor and catalog application. They support both PC and MAC.

Not happy that I can't type a paragraph in the text. Please add a TEXT BOX! In addition to the Identity Plate.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Can't create multi-line identity plates on Windows.

On Windows, you can't create multi-line identity plates in the Slide Show and Print modules. The usual suspects -- Shift-Enter, Ctrl-Enter, Alt-Enter, copy and paste from another program -- don't work.

Since this works on Mac (by typing Alt-Enter), this is clearly a bug. (Tested with LR 5.7.1 / Windows 8.1 / OS X 10.9.5.)

It was reported 4 years ago, but I'm creating a new topic, since the old one apparently has gotten buried and forgotten: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

I'll check with the team. It might be logged but just hasn't bubbled up.

4 years without fixing this issue... Ok it's minor, but it seems simple to fix... please allow for extra lines to be added to identity plates. It's not just an issue with the identity plate "per se", but it also affects any area where identity plates are used for something else... specially, in the slideshow module, where an intro screen can be created using an identity plate, but since it uses the "normal" identity plate editor, I can't do something as simple as adding a new line. It's either limiting myself to a single line, or using a graphic to display more than one line of text (hello? it's 2015!).

AFAIK, this works on mac. So, please... if it's been reported 4 years ago, and acknowledged, could you make sure it's added to your "queue" of things to improve? Again, I understand it's not a big deal, but... it seems a minor request, and one that -as I said- could in turn improve other areas of the program, as the slideshow module, now enhanced in LR CC. Thanks.

I agree with Carlos, Why Mac OS and not Win OS? When compiling slide shows in LR, multi-line text is a necessity for conveying a story, image, etc. To me, it seems like an "easy fix" for Adobe.

I am irritated too. I am using the LR6. Even this latest Lightroom version is incapable of adding multi line text to photos and collages. I cannot understand why the Adobe software developers cannot add the option of adding a text box (in addition to the Identity Plate) to the print module. Even Picasa can do that.

6.12 I still see the same issue. Contactsheet : I have to hit  a function "keep square" or another setting change to see the 2 lines. If i hit save the changes the 2 lines disappear. When the 2 lines are visible they print, when they are not they don't print.
