Inserting a blank line in a comment field

Since at least Acrobat 8 it has been tricky to insert a blank line inside a comment text field. The key combination Alt+010 can be used to insert a line-feed, but the change is lost if the comment is subsequently edited. This bug shows up in reports from years ago. I expected it to be fixed in Acro 10. When is it going to be fixed?

I have seen this in the Text Box. My workaround is to place a space on lines that I want to appear as empty lines. this preserves the line returns.

Which tool are you using? I just tried it (in Acrobat 8) using the Callout tool and just pressing Enter to create a new line and it works fine.
