Is it possible to get a fixed line break in a table in AGOL? I can insert one in Arcmap table via python or VB, but can't figure out how to achieve the same online.
Eg. I have some text:
As soon as I try to insert this into a table field in AGOL by whatever means (direct copy/paste, publish from excel as a hosted table etc), I seem to get
Line 1Line 2
The break gets removed. Is it possible to keep it, or am I just missing something obvious?

Hi Dan, thanks for replying, despite your semi-retirement.
I'd read around the stuff on labelling and .NewLine, but I think(?) my case is slightly different. I'm not looking to create a new block of text from an expression, I'm just looking to preserve the line breaks in a block of text that's already formatted in the source file (an excel sheet in this case) so that I can use that pre-existing field in a pop-up without it appearing as one big paragraph. The text for the relevant field is different in each row, so there's no consistent expression I could apply to insert breaks if I was in 4.x.
Or is your reply actually saying that the limitation on .NewLine in labels is indicative of an underlying universal rule that you can't have a line break in an AGOL table field in 3.x JSAPI?
Thanks again for replying
