Help says "Split lengthy commands by typing a semicolon after a space in the command where you want it to break, and then pressing ENTER."

This only works if there is nothing following the semicolon (i.e. I'm entering the command for the first time). This will not split a previously entered command.

Are you talking about the Command Box

If you go up the history list to re-use a previous command and you want to add to it by adding a ";" then a new line, just select all the text down, after the command you want and press Delete, then continue writing you ammended command line with semicolons (";") if you want.

Reused commands go to the bottom of the command list when you re-run them.

"Split" means continue on next line. ie:

select * from Customer ;
where country = "USA"

It's still a single command. ie:Above equiavant to:

select * from Customer where country = "USA"

and I haven't seen it do not work. It works since fox2x (and maybe before). It doesn't matter you enter the command for the first time or add later.
