Formatting in a trello report - how to get spaces put in!


I have a trello status report working nicely - except for the formatting

I get

  • Base Data Allocated To: Bill Gates Due On: February 15, 2020

From pattern

- {cardname} Allocated To: {{%Customer Resource}} Due On: {cardduedate}

How do I introduce spaces to get something like

  • Base Data           Allocated To: Bill Gates            Due On: February 15, 2020

The report is great but without the spaces it looks all scrunched up and hard to read.

Thanks for any assistance here!

Have you try to use a not defined variable many times as necessary. For example : {space}{space}{space}

If it doesn't work. You can use \n. the sequence \n means 'new line', and to introduce a paragraph break in markdown, it needs to be entered twice in a row. The user interface automatically converts your carriage returns into these when you enter the command.

Maybe an another alternativ by using markdown syntax :

Hi Ludo,

I'm not quite there with this...

I have defined a variable  

From pattern

- {cardname} Allocated To: {{%Customer Resource}} Due On: {cardduedate}

In the output I want to introduce spaces....several after the cardname, several after Customer Resource.

I just can't seem to see how to the spaces in.

{space} in the pattern seems to do nothing.

I know there is something im missing here but I just cant see it.

Thanks for your help but I am still pretty stumped here!
