Keyboard Enter button bypassing text entry mouse click submit

Am noticing on a slide with a text entry field, it's allowing the Enter button keypress to bypass the text entry and move to the results screen. I checked the trigger state and it's set to be based on the user clicks the Submit button. I need to ensure the user's can't bypass the text entry Submit by pressing Enter. Any suggestions?

I originally had imported a single-screen quizmaker quiz with short-answer survey question. Then removed that and added a Survey>Short Answer slide in SL via Insert Slide>Quizzing. I have done some edits on the slide after inserting it. The Submit interaction action is set to occur when user clicks the submit button.

Hi Darrin,

Instead of using a Survey > Short Answer, use a Survey > Essay.  

The Short Answer is a survey question that allows the user to enter a short, freeform response.  User responses can be up to 256 characters long & it's not intended to be used for paragraphs.  Thus, the Enter button submits the answer.

The Essay is a survey question that allows the user to enter a long, freeform response.  Thus, the enter button returns to the next line.
