Description John Talbut 2013-03-22 07:02:57 UTC
It is useful to be able to add, for example, a note about a bibliography table entry on the line below the entry, e.g.:

Hennezel, M. (2012) Seize the Day: How the dying teach us to live, London: Macmillan ISBN: 978-1447205777
A moving account of this psychologist's work with terminally ill people.

The note can be included in the bibligraphy database entry.  What is needed is to be able to enter a Line Break in the structure line of the Insert Index/Table dialogue in the same way as a Tab can be entered.

Makes sense to me :)

Unfortunately, \n also does not work. No way to insert a line break? :o

Wouldn't it be better to have a text field with tokens?
KRegexpEditor has a fine interface for a similar task.

But at least, \n and \t should be parsed.
