    The lack of this ability in the program is just silly. Embarrassing.

    Silly? Embarrassing? To whom?

    There's a technical reason that it's not easy to change this functionality, and it is such a low level priority it is not being allowed to divert valuable development resource from more important requirements. Especially as there is a work around for those who really feel the need for this - detailed here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post224831

    You can help show the devs how important you feel this is by voting in the wishlist here: http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/proj/?ia=62869

    Voted. It does seem odd that a simple Shift-Return doesn't create a line-break.
    I had to change my Sig. Fantasy Grounds Unity is official now...

    Insane! I found this thread on my first search attempt. That's never happened before. Just got lucky with my search string, I guess. Anyway...

    Using the techniques related in the above posts I can get paragraph separations in my chat frame. A couple observations:
    1) when I put 
, as suggested by kylania in the db.xml I get my desired paragraph breaks (entered back-to-back, I get a blank line in between)
    2) if I close FG down (it might take a couple times) 
 is translated by FG's xml reader/writer to & #13; as suggested by Nickademus.

    Now. Is there a series of keystrokes that one might attempt that would allow inserting the magical string sequence using the FG interface? I.e. are there escape characters that one can use when entering text into the Story dialog that would prevent FG's xml writer from translating this 
 to this & 38 
? Maybe backslashes? Maybe a double ampersands? I've tried a variety of incantations, without success.
    (sorry about the extra spaces in some of the strings - the internet page parser strips stuff out.)

    Nope you need to do it in the XML.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Aargh. Thanks Zacchaeus.

    (Looks like a tiny extension is calling my name. If I only had the time.)

 is pretty darned handy!

    I was entering copyright/publishing information into the adventure I am migrating. Splitting addresses up using carriage return (i.e. new paragraphs) makes them look silly, almost ugly. So I took the lesson learned above for chat frames (<frame></frame> in the db.xml) and applied it to the paragraphs (<p></p> in the xml).

    One can use the &#xD; and not have the blank line in between broken lines of text.
    So now the address information looks much more palatable, in my mind at least.

    I always assumed I used shift-enter to keep the lines from breaking in FG. Not sure now that it works... (hmm, going to have to go look!)

    Shift Enter..
    I wasn’t aware of that. It might be true for paragraphs and I’m just late to the table.

    I hope it’s true for the paragraphs. Maybe I can springboard off that in the code to make it work the same way in chat frames.

    To make a paragraph of text without lines between then add "& #10;" at the end of each sentence that you want to output (this is in the XML). If you want multiple paragraphs in a speech bubble include "& #13;& #13;" where you want the break to be.

    Code:
