I expanded a cell to input a few lines of text, when I highlight the cell and double-click inside it to start typing the text keeps typing straight into the next cell adjoined to it, I tried hitting the Enter button to have the cursor start at the extreme left below just like when typing into any document but all it does it place the row of already created text at the bottom of the cell, help?
