Hi support,

I've succeded in creating functional CSV-files and archives for import into Mental Case. However I can't find out how to create paragraph shifts in my custom CSV-files that will reflect correctly into the app.

As seen attached (from your demo 'Bacteria') it seems possible to create text lines/paragraphs with space between. But I can't understand the coding in your original demo-CSV. Mysteriously there´s like an invisible space when moving the curser past where the paragraph shift should be (opened in notepad).

What coding is doing this (and in excel is translated as extra empty rows)?

How can I create forced paragraph shifts in my custom CSV-files?

    Hi Jens,
    If you edit the csv in a text editor, you can put quotation marks around your text, and enter return characters.
    I'm not 100% sure about Excel, but most apps allow newlines by entering option-enter (I may have the wrong key). I think that should work.
    Kind regards,
