Line breaks in custom fields descriptions (in PDP) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    We have created a bunch of project custom fields and grouped them together in various Project Detail Pages (PDPs). Some of the field contain rather long descriptions. It seems that there is no way to enforce a line break for any of these descriptions.

    Using line breaks in these description fields would dramatically improve the readability. Any ideas on how to accomplish that? I have tried using HTML "<p>" or "<br>" without success.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Reid

    I tried Shift + Enter, Ctrl + Enter, Shift + Ctrl + Enter and none of them work... :(

  • Hi Marc,

    As far as I know, line breaks do not show up for the description field on a PDP page. You can enter the description using line breaks, but on the PDP all text will show up on the same line.

    Don't forge that PDPs are web part pages. You are not limited to using Project Server web parts. For instance simply using the content editor web part and the right layout choices, it's amazing what you can accomplish in making PDP pages look nice.
