I need to have multiple lines of text in a Show, Section Heading. When I verify the expression of Content, it appears correctly, but in the app there is no carriage return (it is a wrapped paragraph). How can I enter a carriage return so I get 3 lines of text instead?

@Steve_Wood Not sure if it will work with Section Header but you can try:

=CONCATENATE(“Line 1 Text”," “,“Line 2 Text”,” ",“Line 3 Text”)

Thank you for the quick reply, but that didn’t work. That didn’t change the display at all from my previous attempt.

@Steve_Wood

Pay attention when writing the expression in the expression builder; and put a carriage return (enter) between each line in the expression:

=CONCATENATE(“Line 1”." enter “,“Line 2”,” enter ",“Line 3”)

But as I said though this, it might not work with Section Header. Try it with Text and then use a Formatting rule for the text weight, color and size.

Perhaps you should use three separate Show columns, rather than just one with line breaks.

@Levent_KULACOGLU Using a Show, Text column type worked with both methods of formatting (w/ and w/o CONCATENATE). Thanks.
