    I need a text box that allows for many lines of text.

    I knew how to allow for multiple lines in the old format, but can't figure it out in the new format.  I need a text box that allows for many lines of text.

    Were you perhaps referring to the TextArea field and not a Textbox field?

    The Textbox field does not have a multi-line propert but the TextArea field have.


    You can use the TextArea field instead.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
