Hi i am new to trello and can't figure out how to put text content into cards without the trello system separating each line space of the text into separate tasks.
eg: If i want to put this in:
John is my friend.
I have known him for 25 years and we met in high school.
He is clever and funny.
That piece of info comes in as three separate tasks. I do not want this.
Help... I have searched for help and can't find the answer.
Hi @Teri Jo Wheeler ! Welcome to the community :) Are you referring to the checklist items within your card as shown below?
When adding the title of the checklist item, if it has line breaks like so:
Trello will generate 3 separate checklist items. I don't believe there's a way to turn off this functionality. If you'd prefer all of that information to be contained in one checklist item, you would need to enter it in without line breaks:
Item A Item B Item C
When replicating this with creating cards, Trello asks if you want separate cards or just one card:
If you wanted, you could reach out to Trello directly to see if this is something they could implement for checklists as well! https://trello.com/contact#/
Right, so you're referring to the cards rather than the checklist items? If that's the case, the card titles are designed to be a single-line field. Generally, you would use a title to quickly summarize what needs to be done. The description inside the card can then be used to elaborate further (from there you can format your text).
You should be able to submit a ticket to Trello if you scroll all the way down the bottom. See below (FYI this was taken from a free Trello account).
