AFAIK this has never come up. I just tested in Entourage and the Enter key
inserts a line feed, but if I type a line and hit the Numpad Enter key it
does not insert a line feed.
On a Macintosh keyboard, the Enter and Return key are two different keys.
The Return key is the usual ig key, while the Enter key is a regular-size
key right to the right ctrl key. In most software, they behave the same, but
on the Adium software, the Return key sends the message whilst the Enter key
insert a line feed (like cmd+return).
The user needs to adjust his typing habits. I know I had to change from
command to option key at one time and thought that it would be impossible to
change old habits, but in a couple of days it became natural.
You can remap some keyboard shortcut with the software for the keyboard. At
least you can for Microsoft keyboards, but I don't see the Enter key as an
option. I advise you to do this with caution as I don't know how it would
affect other applications.
I just did a quick Google search for "reassign Enter key on keyboard" and
Use Ukelele to create a custom keyboard layout (you can open an existing
keyboard layout and just change the mapping and save with a new name to the
appropriate folder) then use the International menu (accessed from the
International System Pref) to select that keyboard layout.
Two caveats: I know from experience that keyboard preferences don't always
"stick" under 10.4.x. And I haven't tried specifically remapping the Enter
key, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
There were many links that you might want to check using that search
