Key assignments are read from the file 
(SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources/[Windows]).  Here is an example:

Item[(some key event),
      "\[NewLine]", After]}]]

Just make sure that you back up that file before you make any changes, 
and do NOT create any additional .tr files in the TextResources directory.

(But I strongly advise against changing the meaning of keys like 
"Return", or "Tab", so if you *really* need that \[NewLine] for your 
special custom formatting, choose some other key event to override.)
