Checklists - How to add line breaks

On a checklist item, how do I add line breaks. I'm not very conversant, but did google markdown and tried adding / and also tried adding 2 spaces, which seemed to be the suggestions I saw. Neither worked, so would appreciate guidance. Thanks.

@Barbara Decker there's no newlines in checklist items.

Why did you want them there? There might be another way to achieve your goal.

I have a checklist item and it consists of thoughts best broken into paragraphs - but it is one checklist item. Or I have a checklist item and am making a list of options for how I might do it - and those options should be one per row. Thanks for your help.

@Barbara Decker in that case what I'd recommend is creating cards for each thing on the checklist, and copying/pasting a link to that card into the checklist item. I use this pattern a lot!
