    Input Table: It's not easy to add line break or new line on its options?

    Asked by Powstatan on March 28, 2017 at 03:13 PM

    I see how someone can create new lines when making checkbox fields (using the V3 editor), but not when creating input tables. Thank you!

    Use <br> code in the input table field properties, this should work.


    Preview the form after so you can see the actual line break.

    I have also raised this to our developers so they can apply a better solution. There should be an easy way to achieve this.

    We are sorry for this inconvenience. The br tag will be seen on builder when you write it to question text. However, when you preview your form, the text after br tag will be moved to new line.  

    In addition, I assigned this to one of our developers for a short cut without needing br tag. If this feature is implemented, you will be notified via this thread. 

    Thank you for reporting us.

    Now you can use <br> tag in your Input Table field.Also you can use shift + enter key to break line on this field.


    Thank you so much.
