How to copy and paste poems

I’m super new and was wondering if it is possible to copy and paste an entire poem onto the paragraph component? I tried doing that and all the words and lines just became a paragraph. Can I sort it out into 5 stanzas?

Or is there some other way to doing this?

Sorry, I’m just not very savvy at this.
Thank you for any help.


If you use the Rich text component from the component marketplace, that will respect your line changes (and also allow you to use Markdown syntax for formatting the text).

Let me know if that does the trick!

Hi Harri,
I have not had the chance to but I will try it when I am able to sneak a little time off work :slight_smile:

Thank you.

Hi Harri,
I just installed the rich text component but I couldn’t get it to work.

Please let me know if I’m doing this right.
First I dragged the rich text component from the left onto the page.
I copied an existing stanza of the poem and pasted it onto the right side. Under contents I pasted the stanza. All the 4 lines are now as a paragraph. I used the arrow keys to go to the beginning of the next line and press enter hoping that it would make a second line but it didn’t. What am I missing?

Thank you for your help.

You can use Shift+Enter to create a new line, and if there’s two line changes, Rich text renders it as a new paragraph, e.g.

First stanza

Second stanza

Hi Harri,
I tried that, didn’t work. :frowning:

Hi Harri,

I tried it but pressing once Shift + enter didn’t do anything but when I pressed Shift + enter twice it create 2 lines changes, not another paragraph. So my entire poem is just 2 lines between every lines without any stanzas.

Thank you though.



“Don’t worry about today coming to an end, it is already tomorrow in Australia.”

Alright, so to make a line change without a chapter break, your line needs to have two spaces at the end before the line break.

So e.g. pasting this into the Rich text component will work – see how each line has two extra space if you paint the text below:

Whose woods these are I think I know.  
His house is in the village though;  
He will not see me stopping here  
To watch his woods fill up with snow.  

My little horse must think it queer  
To stop without a farmhouse near  
Between the woods and frozen lake  
The darkest evening of the year.  

He gives his harness bells a shake  
To ask if there is some mistake.  
The only other sound’s the sweep  
Of easy wind and downy flake.  

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,  
But I have promises to keep,  
And miles to go before I sleep,  
And miles to go before I sleep.


Thank you for your time Harri. I’ll try it. :slight_smile:


Hi Harri,
Can I ask a new question here?

How do I insert a URL ? I have created the button which I labelled “Link”. What logic to use to direct this button to the URL?

Thank you


You can use the Open URL flow function!

Thank you Harri.

I hope you don’t mind. I have another question.
Why is there an exclamation mark on 2 pages - Home page and SDEA member Spotlight? The top right hand corner.

I’ve attached an image.

Thank you.


See my answer here – in short, nothing to worry about: Green Exclamation Point in the "Pages" page

The Markdown syntax formatting just doesn’t work for some things like lists.

Is there an HTML component?

Yes, I’m just putting the final touches on a HTML renderer component! Should get it out soon.

Hi @Harri_Sarsa,

is there also a way to style a data variable string with enters/new lines

Preferably, after the “:” and the commas it should start a new line.

Thanks for your help :blush:

I found some txt to Markdown translator online
