Can I show Event description on multiple lines in "List View"


I have a Team Calendar. I have it configured to display in "List View."

For some Events, in the Description, I have input several lines of text separated by carriage returns.

In the List View, the several lines of text only display as a single line.

Is there a way to display the several lines as several lines?

Thank you.

multi line event.PNG        Well this is late!  But better late than never :)  There is not an official way to do this, but what you can do is add periods or underscores etc next to the text on each line to fill the required characters per line.  I experimented with how many to add and was able to just make a template so I add periods until it matches the previous line and the result looks like this.  You can use the same method to add spaces in  between each line as needed.
