# How to make list entry of many paragraphs?

• List item

can be 1 line long only, right?

Actually, you can also use multiple paragraphs (in contrast to "lines") in a list.

• To do this, simply indent the first line of the second paragraph by one space (or more, how you like it).

I like this more than breaking lines by spaces, because the paragraph breaks make the text easier to read.

• Here is the source code I used for this (excluding the source code itself):

Nope, looks like you can have multiple lines

• line 1 of item one
line 2 of item one
• Line 1 of item 2
• Line 1 of item 3
Line 2 of item 3
Line 3 of item 3
• Line 1 of item 4

To do this I just type <space><space> at the end of lines that should be under the same bullet or number. Then type <enter> and type the next line. It also appears to work for numbered lists.

1. Line 1 of number 1
Line 2 of number 1
2. Line 1 of number 2
3. Line 1 of number 3
Line 2 of number 3
4. Line 1 of number 4

• I can't edit your post, so I can't see the markup you're using. IMHO if edit is inactive, "view source" should be displayed instead. – Smit Johnth May 31 '13 at 21:12
• I agree. I'm guessing we can't just enable that though. – mikeazo May 31 '13 at 21:48
• I uploaded a screenshot which highlights the trailing spaces. – Hendrik Brummermann May 31 '13 at 22:00
• @HendrikBrummermann this doesn't work for me. – Smit Johnth Jun 1 '13 at 11:09
