Exact Forms - Extra Spaces with Rich Text fields

  • 1.  Exact Forms - Extra Spaces with Rich Text fields

    I have a multi line rich text field in an exact form.  In the past I used html to manage the spacing which worked fine.  When Quickbase changed the formatting on this field I can no longer use html in the field successfully (I can put html in the source).  My issue is for every hard return it adds an extra space at the bottom of the text.  I used to be able to use </br> and write all the text on one line to eliminate this problem

    when editing data in a rich text field when hitting enter for a new line hold down the shift key at the same time as the enter key and instead of a paragraph you'll get a single line break or the <br />  html tag

    Thanks for reply.  I have used that technique to create the breaks.  It still creates a blank line at the end of the text for each line break.   If I'm inserting 10 lines of text it will be followed by 10 blank lines before the next item in the exact form.

    Hi Scott, I see the same thing.

    here is my test...


    digging a little deeper, the api returns some extra break tags in the xml that may be causing the issue
    see here

    <f id="66">
    Line 1 of Terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 2 of Terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 3 of terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 4 of Terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 5&nbsp;of terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 6&nbsp;of Terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 7&nbsp;of terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 8&nbsp;of Terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 9&nbsp;of terms<br /><BR/>
    Line 10&nbsp;of Terms
    </f>

    when I try the same thing with our Exact Forms Plus add-on we don't have that same problem though

    you should open a support case with Quick Base

    Scott, I'm so glad you asked this question. I'm consistently running into the same issue - have you had any success or heard back from Quick Base (if you opened a support case)?
