Splunk Search

formatting query onto multiple lines in search bar

I'm trying to format the query in the search bar so it appears on multiple lines (for easier readability).

From this:
sourcetype=iis cs_host="test.com" NOT c_ip="92.111*" | timechart span=1d dc(cs_username) AS User_Count | eval Date=strftime(_time, "%Y-%m-%d") | eval User_Count=tostring(User_Count, "commas") | rename User_Count as "User Count" | table Date, "User Count"

To this:
sourcetype=iis cs_host="test.com" NOT c_ip="92.111*"
| timechart span=1d dc(cs_username) AS User_Count
| eval Date=strftime(_time, "%Y-%m-%d")

| eval User_Count=tostring(User_Count, "commas")
| rename User_Count as "User Count"
| table Date, "User Count"

Is there a shortcut key that will work to split the query into multiple lines? Pressing Enter in the search bar just runs the search.

Thank you.
