How do I enter a "soft return" ("line break" or "newline character") in a text object?

I have several layouts that contain large amounts of boilerplate text entered as text objects. I need to be able to enter a "soft return" (aka "line break" or "newline character") to force text to a new line without invoking the Line Spacing settings that control paragraphs   separated by "hard returns" - like you get when you hit the Return key. But I can't find anything on the subject.

 

This is not about importing or exporting anything. This is just about static text in a text object on a database layout.

 

Is there a special character or command that can be used to force a soft return? No combination of shift - control - option & Return that I have tried achieves anything other than a hard return. I could just add several spaces, but that seems sloppy and it causes issues with text justification.
