Carriage Return in Update/Calculate Field's Output box

    Hello... is there a way to insert a carriage return within the info/data that you want to render within an Update/Calculate rule.

    I wish to update a field's output to show someone's secondary contact person if they indicate one. I created an empty text box with the rule to update content/output to render the secondary contact person's info (name, email & phone) but when I set up the "Do" box within the update rule, I'm only able to render it in a straight line:

    Secondary Contact: Joe Schmoe 804-555-5555

    What I'd like to do is have the output within the update/format box to allow for a carriage return so that it renders as:

    Secondary Contact:

    Joe Schmoe


    (without the paragraph line spacing though)

    Is this possible?

    Please let us know the form's url so we can inspect this mater further.

    If I understood correctly your requirement, you would like to add a condition, so that several fields are displayed in different lines in the same text box field. 

    Text box fields are single lined, so it is advisable to use instead the Text Area fields, which allow multi-lines.

    Then, inside the condition you can add <br/> that creates a line break. You can test and clone the demo form:
