Why is my JSON App not helping format my long-text JSON field?

Notice how its all in one big long string? Why is it not formatted?

Welcome to the Airtable community!

You didn’t grab the entire text string. You are missing the opening square bracket. opening curly brace, and the first key.

Hey Scott,

If interested, we have a JSON Editor in the On2Air Amplify app with lots of features.

Hey there! Thanks for chiming in - but sadly this is not the case.

I did include all necessary elements, the screenshot just has it scrolled to the right so you don’t see it. Any other ideas @kuovonne ?

Ah, I see the issue now. The screen shot of the field looks like it has formatting because it looks like it has line breaks, but it really doesn’t.

If you want the JSON editor app to add line breaks for you, press Alt+Shift+F .
