Q - question

Line breaks in cells in AutoCAD tables.

A - answer If you want to enter a multi-line text in a table cell, you can either rely on the automatic "soft" line-wrapping (AutoCAD decides about line breaks) or you can type a "hard" line-break.

You can do this with the key combination Alt+Enter. This keyboard shortcut enters a new line code to AutoCAD table cells (similarly to Excel).
