Inserting a carriage return for USETEXT in FOSI

Inserting a carriage return for USETEXT in FOSI

Hi folks, this may be a st00pid question, but I can't figure it out.

I want to use a USETEXT in my FOSI to put a headline for one of the sections
of my instances. How do I put a carriage return in there, so that I can put
the heading on its own line? It seems to me that there should be a
character entity for a carriage return but I can't seem to find one. Or
perhaps there's another way of doing this?

I use USETEXT a lot in my FOSI but up until now I was inserting it on the
same line as the regular text.

Can anyone help? Thanks..

You can put a list of subchars on the usetext and use the textbreak
characteristic to keep the text on a line by itself. In DocArch, you
can double-click on the usetext and the subchar screen will come up
or here's how you would code it in ASCII:







Hope this helps!

Hi Chris,

Let's try a pseudo-tag that break before and after, something like this
:

Nest a subchars element within the usetext, and in the subchars
put , or, to get a line break in the middle
of a usetext, use a pseudo-element whose e-i-c has startln=1.
