Cannot force hard breaks in text block

    Hi Attila,

    Attached is a link to my "Bio" page. It is formatted using the Styles tab, and the slider sits inside a generic Guterberg page with no Theme applied.

    I am having trouble formatting my biographical text in a single layer... can you help me figure out a workaround to format it thusly?

    1.) I want to force hard returns so there are blank lines between paragraphs. When I try to use a </p><p> tag in the text box (or even when I convert it to an HTML box), I lose my font size and color formatting. I tried a series of <br><br> tags, but that doesn't work either. I have even experimented with <div> and <span> tags (even with a   thrown in for good measure), but no luck. How can I force a hard return between paragraphs within a single text box layer?

    2.) It seems to ignore my <strong></strong> tags inline, as well as an inline email link <a href="mailto:jbh@3Dnm8r.net" target="_blank"></a>. How can I make these appear in that same text layer?

    Thanks again,

    Jim

    Hey Attila,

    The link to my Bio page doesn't show up in the post below.

    Hello Jim,

    The problem is that you are trying to merge multiple text blocks and styles into one single layer. This is not a recommended method, as it can interfere with the layer's responsiveness or other attributes.

    I'd recommend to add a separate text layer for each block you want to create. And then format and style them with the built-in options in Styles tab. 

    This way, they will be definitely correct.

    Hmmmm.... well, I can control the style for the entire text layer, but it still ignores my inline tags.
    Even when I convert the text layer to a HTML layer, it still ignores my <strong> tag and <a href="mailto:> tag.

    Any ideas why that doesn't work, even as a HTML layer?

    OK, I separated the paragraph into separate text blocks, but I still cannot add an inline HTML text link. No <a href="mailto:>, no <strong>... Is there a trick to that? What do I do to make that work?

    Please do not use HTML code in your text layers. Instead, use the plugin's built-in options. They are guaranteed to work. You can use the Linking field in the Link & Attributes tab to link your text. And you can style your layers in their Styles tab.
