    We have already written a test case. Need to update a test step by adding few more point.

    Pressed 'Enter' key (or) 'Shift + Enter' key. Not able to create new line.

    Please clarify us on how to give new line for a test step between two sentences.

    The only way to currently do this (that I am aware of) is with adding the HTML for a line break at the end of the first sentence.  Try adding <br /> and then enter your text for the next line immediately thereafter. Once you click off the step, it should be displayed as two lines of text for you.

    @Angela, thanks for your tip.

    Hi Sangeetha, you can use Angela's tip for now. Be aware that the single item view will display the <br> and the single item edit view will render the line break. I think Jama is currently considering enhancing test steps with some needed HTML formatting.

    Having similar issue, but with importing a functional requirement. For what its worth I used excel to concatenate a few fields and inserted CHAR(10) and CHAR(13) between the items. I get line breaks working correctly in Edit AND single item view. In DOCUMENT view I don't have any line breaks.. here is an example of the excel formula to create the new cell. . =CONCATENATE(G2,CHAR(10),CHAR(13),H2)

    I dont think CHAR(13) is entirely necessary.. YMMV

    Dan, that is an interesting observation—I would not have guessed that would work on import. Thanks for sharing.

    ​Hello,

    I see that this is an old topic (from 2015), but I was wondering if this is something JAMA is pursuing to add on its next release. We are importing our test books through excel and regardless of having line breaks in the same cel for the Actions, Results or Notes, line breaks are ignored and information is pulled together (concatenated) in the test runs.

    Funny enough, they seem to appear when in edit mode after importing, but just not displayed on the test run.

    Thanks,

    Lilliana

    Thanks for replying Chloe.

     

    Since this was a topic brought in 2015, I thought that maybe it was already fixed or put as an enhancement. Because I could see the spaces when in edit in JAMA, but not in the test run, I thought that maybe was a bug. I'll posted in the Suggest a Product idea forum.

     

    Regards, Saludos

    Hello,

     

    Any reply on this subject? I wanted to know if this is something that it might be pursued for the next release, especially since it was brought since 2015.
