Multiple Lines of Text in a Single Cell in Spreadsheets

Every product on the market has slight variations in how to access functions; and Quip is no different. One function that seems to come up often is around adding multiple lines of text within a single cell in Quip Spreadsheets. Other names for this action are carriage return, cartridge return or even just CR. Essentially the purpose of this particular function is to grant users the ability to customize the look and feel of their spreadsheets to a greater degree. 

Here is an example:
