Formatted text in RTFM articles

Is there anyway to format text in RTFM articles? I have created a custom
filed of type “Fill in one text area” but it messes up the text. An
example;

I have a couple of lines of text, separated by spaces as shown;

Texttexttext moretextmoretextmoretext

When I look at the article, the text appears as;

Texttexttext moretextmoretextmoretext

I have tried with tabs and get the same result and I also tried changing
the format of the CF to wikitext but I get the same result. Ay ideas or
suggestions? If this is the way it is it makes RTFM unusable for what we
had planned.

Regards, Jim

Ken,

I’ve tried that and the result is exactly the same :-(. Any other idea?

Jim,

Try defining the CF as"Fill in WikiText". That works better.

When using the wikitext area in RTFM, any text that does not begin in the
first column is rendered as preformatted text. So instead of:

Texttexttext moretextmoretextmoretext

use:

Texttexttext moretextmoretextmoretext
^

Note the space in front of the line, meaning it does not begin the first
column and so is treated as pre-formatted.
