Lines are created by creating blocks or, if you are already in a set of 
lines in a block, by interrupting the flow.

You could create a new block for your "next line", or you could introduce 
an empty block inside a block to interrupt the flow.

But you don't say *why* you need a new line ... if you want to preserve an 
existing line feed, then you need to play with the linefeed and white space 

I hope this helps.
