    I usually say something like Boogie or Kentucky when I want a new paragraph or line. Then when I'm finished the list or document, I "find and replace" that unlikely word or phrase with a line break.

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    Your response is in a thread that is 5 years old for the original Motorola Droid.

    What phone and what app are you using?

    If I use something like chompSMS with SwiftKey on my Motorola Droid Turbo I can say "new paragraph" and it will enter a period, new line, new line and continue from there.

    I have an s7. When I end a sentence or simply want a carriage return, I say "newline" as if it were one line... works every time.
