I made my own keyboard layout… I have it on AltGr+Enter. The Unicode
is 21B5, so another way is to type Ctrl+Shift+u 21b5 Enter (or just
continue typing). THis doesn't work everywhere, though. For instance
in my web browser (Opera). The ”Opera way” is, instead: 21b5

carriage return or new line”.

Kind regards

And by the way, my signature is made with AutoKey.
