Is there a way to get a new line in a long hint on the source template?  I added a field that only has a few possible values, and I wanted the long hint to have a separate line describing each value.  Just pressing <enter> doesn't do anything; all the text just runs together.

Not that I am aware of. You can put carriage returns in the Master Text and Detail Text fields.

The Long Hint field editor supports both <Enter> and Ctrl+Enter for the start of a new line but the Long Hint display in the Citation editor strips them out. This is logically inconsistent. I know which one I would want changed so as to be consistent with the other...
