Multiline column description?

Hi,

I would like to use this for my columns description:

Safety
What tools are available to identify, control and record safety topics or concerns?
(Pre start, Take 5, Hazard identification, SWMS, Toolbox)

As you can see after safety is a new line and after the question mark. This is to help seperate the information for the reader.

But, when I use this I get this:
Capture

Which is clearly not formatted how I would like.

Is there a way around this? Or should this be marked as a feature request?

Thank you

@SKETCHwade
Try with this expression:

CONCATENATE("Safety","
","What tools are available to identify, control and record safety topics or concerns?","
","(Pre start, Take 5, Hazard identification, SWMS, Toolbox)"
)

I double checked just to be sure:

You may very well be out of luck.

Have you considered whether Show-type columns might help?

When I tested this, I used like this…

And the result was…

Ah, the reason @Aleksi succeeded where you did not is that he used the Description property where you used Display Name. The Description property is intended for longer, possibly multi-line text (like yours), whereas Display Name is for a shorter single line of text.
