I have a “description” field that can run several paragraphs, but I can’t find a way to display in a field where I can see multiple lines with a scroll bar.

The expanded record view just shows one line. Shift-space puts the field in a little pop-up, but it’s still just one line deep. And supposedly the gallery view can show more than one line, but it doesn’t do this for me.

Do I have to have the Pro version to do this?

Is your “Description” field format as a “Long Text” field type? You might have mistakenly formatted them as “Single Line Text”.

I’m fairly certain that if you format that field as “Long Text”, it will display multiple lines in the expanded record view.

That was it! Thanks so much for your help!
