Do you mean in the card title or the card description? The card title is of course a "one liner".

While it seems logical not to allow line breaks in titles, “card title” is just a misnomer. Everybody uses card titles as short descriptions, since that’s all the text we can see when looking at a whole board.

Some people (including me) do need proper line breaks there. Trello should let people decide whether they want them or not. What wrong would supporting the standard shift + return shortcut do?

Some people resort to extreme hacks to emulate that feature (see https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/20492/how-do-i-insert-a-carriage-return-on-a-card-in-trello ).

I too need to use line breaks in anything I write - card descriptions, list points, card titles....makes no sense that this should not be supported, it is basic text formating.

This is also an issue for me in tasks. Sometimes the line breaks are very beneficial for a task without resorting to creating a separate card for it.
