When using dictation I can't get "New Line" to work. It simply types this phrase! The "New Paragraph" command works, but adds all these additional spaces into my text. Has anybody got ideas on how to resolve? Is there another way to dictate a "return key"?

    My guess is this issue is caused by the language you selected at System Preferences > Dictation & Speech > DIctation > Langugage


    "New line" works for me.

    Yes thank you, this worked. It would be nice to know what the new line command is for Australian English… But one cannot have everything… Thanks a lot!

    I understand.


    Perhaps Apple Support in Australia would be willing to answer that one for you.  Their phone number is:

    (61) 1-300-321-456


    Or I wonder if there is some term used in Australia that means "new line" that might work (such as "return").  "Return" does not generate a new line here.
