    Hi,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to add multiple paragraphs in one text area. Although, I'm still quite confused with what you would like to achieve. Could you give us more details of it?

    You could probably achieve this by using the form's full source code and using a Javascript function to add multiple paragraphs to one text area field. 

    Thanks

    would like the text as new sentences , instead as one continuous sentence.

     

    eg 

    It is a sunny day.

    But it is going to rain.

     

    instead of :

    It is a sunny day. But it is going to rain.

     

    Thank

    I'm not quite sure if I understand your question correctly.
    Do you want to automatically add new lines in a text area when a user enters a dot character? Or you're referring to something else?

    If you want to add the new lines automatically, you would need to use the full source code of your form as my colleague had mentioned and use a custom script to achieve this.

    Let us know if this is what you want or I misunderstood your last post.
