Hi there,


I have the following textbox item in a survey page:


 <textbox experience>





/ caption = "Please write in the box below:"


/ textboxsize = (4540)


/ required = false


/ multiline = true


</textbox>


The problem is that whenever a participant hits 'Enter' to start a new line in the textbox, the data gets recorded in a new line as well. Is there a way to disable this type of data recording so that the data gets recorded in the same cell even though participant hits enter? (I would prefer not to ask participants to avoid using 'Enter' key as the task is of sensitive nature and extra instructions might might interfere with the task). 


Any help highly appreciated!


Best,


Davis

I cannot reproduce this behavior. See the screenshot below



and the attached data file. Open it in Notepad and you'll see that it's all in a single line (as it indeed should be). Which app are you using to view your data files? If SPSS or Excel, the issue is likely due to the chosen import settings, which you'd have to tweak accordingly. Let us know what you find.


Regards,


~Dave
