    To create a new line for the Sub heading - says to shift + enter... BUT this does not create a new line.

    Thank you for your post, unimelb.

    What the description actually means is that you should press the shift key + enter key to move to a new line in the text area, not to make a new line on the form's layout.  As falkirks has stated, if you wish to make a new line on your form layout's sub heading, you will need to enter the code <br />, this way it will make a new line once you publish the form.
