how to prevent save when enter key pressed in the text field

Hi, I'm having a problem that preventing automatic save when enter key pressed in the text field.

the code I'm looking in as follows.

function CheckEnterKey() {
    if (event.which == 13) {        
        var s = $('.nextstepdetails').val();
        $('.nextstepdetails').val(s + "\n");

// Edit template functions for MultiLine textbox
function createML() {
    return "<textarea class='form-control nextstepdetails' rows='1' cols='50' style='word-wrap:break-word !important;' onkeydown='CheckEnterKey()' onkeypress='CheckEnterKey()'>{{:NextStepDetail}}</textarea>";

the text field is styled as textarea. I don't want autosave when 'Enter' key pressed. I want to keep editing the text and just click 'Save/Update' button to save.

Thank you in advance!
Kind Regards,

Hi Dongil,
