How to add line breaks in a single string Variable

0
I have created a Document with a single String variable. This variable has some text. Text in Document is like: ......... some english words....... a)......... some more words  a.1)..... some more words  a.2)....some more words b).....some words I give this Document data at run time. I have used a text area and have written the text in above format only (using enter button for new line), but when I download the Document, I do not get this format. Am getting everything like a paragraph.  Is there any way in which I can get the data in above format. PLease let me know. Modeler version hat I use here is 5.19.0

As Jeffrey said, you should use CKEditor to edit your string variable.  Then, in the document template, for that string attribute, set Render XHTML to true.

For this you have to use Rich text widget

You can build a string variable in your microflow with line breaks like this:

$ValidationMessage+'
- First finalize handling assignment.'

Start with a quote on the first line and write the string on the second line.

Did you try adding line breaks

Try "\r\n" or maybe "<br / >"

 

EDIT: Haven't tested it

Hi Manasa,

 

Perhaps you can take a look at the CKEditor widget version 2.2, this version should work with your modeler version. 

If you don't want to work with a widget, you have to run the commit through a Microflow and add the linebreaks there.

 

Good luck, search this forum can also help you find answers, as I believe this is asked before.

 

Kind regards,

Jeffrey
