CRM 2013 - how to have big "Mutiple Lines of Text" field? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    How can I make my "Multiple Lines of Text" field in CRM 2013 have more than 1 row? This option was available in 2011 but I don't see this in 2013 and all it does is create one row field, but I want this field to house mini articles and want it to be 10 rows in height. Any help would be much appreciated..

    Thanks so much

  • Dan,

    the same is possible in CRM 2013 too.,Check that your field's Maximum length accommodates the data you need. I used 200,000 to test. On the field's properties set the number of rows.. The Desc field shows 10 rows height in snapshot below.

  • Thanks, and this is what I would expect, but my "Formatting" tab does not have "Row Layout" it ends at Layout

  • not sure if this related to incompatible browser.. I see you are using IE but worth checking with a different browser (IE 11 is still not supported). I used chrome and had the Row Layout options.
