Is it possible to have a data field with multiple lines? I'm trying to show a grid with records of text that contain line breaks.

Once you've created the Data Master and drag the Data List on the screen, select the Input Text Field in the Data List, and change it to textarea in the Properties palette.

Sure, select the text in the data grid. Then go to 'properties' and change the 'Style' property from 'text' to 'text area'

How do I get the desired line breaks into the data, though? The data editor doesn't seem to allow carriage returns/line breaks.

The line breaks depend on the width of the input field.
