Hi,

I am entering instructions in the ODK for enumerators to highlight few

tasks, and I am interested to enter them in a same cell but they display in

separate line in ODK. For example, in Excel I am entering three statements

in a cell and declare them as 'text'

1] do task 1

2] do task 2

3] do task 3

After entering '1] do task 1', I am entering ALT+Enter to bring the cursor

to next line and enter the next task. In Excel the texts are displaying in

three separate line, but while running in ODK all these rows are displaying

in the same row.

Can any one suggest any solution.

Many thanks.

Surajit

Hi Surajit?

Try grouping Task 1/2 and adding "field-list" in appearance column of

the begin_group

This cause all three items to appear on same page in different lines/rows

Hi Louis,

Thanks for the quick response.

When I am using field-list, then between the line there is light shaded

line and line gap is more. I want to display the statements without a blank

line.

Many thanks.

ODK Collect now supports many aspects of markdown (

https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet ) in its

labels.

I am not sure how XLSForm converts things, but what you want to end up with

is a "\n" in the label text within the XML file (e.g., the label would be

"1] do task 1\n2] do task 2\n3]do task3" ) to get the items to appear on

separate lines.

You may need to enter this using \n or \n in the XLS file.

(by widespread convention, \n means 'new line' within computer programs)

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have tried with both \n and \n, but somehow I am not getting the insert

line. May be I am missing something.

Apart from Excel is there other package that can be used for developing ODK

program.

Excel is the preferred method.

Attached is an example.

Using Alt+Enter in Excel does, in fact, work to create line breaks. If you

want simple paragraphs, you need to use 2 new-lines (Alt+Enter) in a row.
