TortoiseMerge is not a text editor, so to add a new line you have to
press enter first to create a new line.

Lines in TortoiseMerge are treated as text with a line ending (CR/LF).
If there is no text and no line ending, then the line does not really
exist: text editors can show the cursor there because of the CR/LF after
the previous line, but that line doesn't really exist.
