Hello I'm new to airtable, and I recently had a website built using Airtable as a database for a car listing widget. We have a column in our airtable where we input a short and long description for each vehicle we list. Below is a screen shot of what the data looks like once we past it into the cell of the airtable. It looks like one big run-on sentence. Is there any way to format this data to display nicer? Or at least have a line break so that each sentence can be displayed on its own line so its broken up some and easier to read? Thanks!2023-08-24_15-26-07.png

I would prefer it read like the following if possible....

That's cool that you use Airtable for that application. If you go to your column pull down, you should see a button for Rich Text Formatting. Make sure that is on and you'll be able to display on a separate line. Here's a snapshot. 

@Robert_William1 thank you so much!! My developers told me this wasn't possible! You did it in 2 seconds! Thank you so much!! Save me to much time and headaches.
