    How to increase line spacing between paragraphs in free text (power tools)?

    Asked by guest_22966437346059 on October 23, 2012 at 05:22 PM

    Hi -


    I pasted in some free text that includes several points of spacing between paragraphs and I'm not able to save it that way, so that all of my paragrpahs are jammed up next to each other and hard to read. Other forming, such as bolding and bullets, do show up. Is there a way to fix this? I understand how to decrease line spacing between questions but this is about text within a free text area.

    I think what can be done in order to show space between paragraph in free text, is to add the <br> tag after each paragraphs. This can be done by editing the html of the Free Text (HTML) as shown on the image.

    Hi again!

    After experimenting with the tools, the <br/> tag has to be added by clicking in the HTML botton from the tool bar. Just click on the Free Text (HTML) field and then click on the HTML button as shown below:
