Rich Text Editor allows to customize the tag that is inserted when pressing the enter key and shift + enter key in the Rich Text Editor.

Enter key customization

By default, the <p> tag will be created while pressing the enter key. The enter key can be customized by using the enterKey property, where the possible tags that can be used to customize are <p>, <div>, and <br>.

When the enter key is customized with any of the possible values, pressing the enter key in the editor will create a new tag that is configured. Also, when the enter key is configured the default value of the Rich Text Editor will also change respectively with the configured values.
