    Why is my Text Field not behaving like paragraphs?

    Asked by edie850 on June 29, 2017 at 04:29 PM
    n addition, the preamble will not separate in paragraphs despite my many attempt in asking it to.  Hoping you can help.

    I inspected the preamble you're referring to and the reason they don't behave like normal paragraphs do was because these are not paragraphs - They are spans.

    To fix this, you'd have to copy and remove everything (or cut it) then paste them back together to the Text Field as plain text. Here's what I mean:

    Doing so would render them again as paragraphs with proper spacing. The first paragraph btw on your Text Field has an extra line break so just delete that and you're good to go.

    Hi Jim_R ~ Thank you so much! That worked perfectly. I loved the physical ‘tutorial’ as well - really helped.
    Thanks again!
