I am trying to have a 3 stanza poem be the password to unlocking the final portion of the program… How would I create a line break in the code so the program can understand it?

 If you simply wish to display line breaks, the simplest way to do that is to define a blank variable, like this:

>>blank = " "

And insert {blank} wherever you want a line break.

If your program is embedded, you can also group your text using the *group keyword and add a class that creates a line break after each paragraph.

If you wish for the answer to be dependent on the poem being entered exactly correctly, including line breaks, that is more complicated.

Hello, I am having a similar problem. I have several paragraphs of text that are repeated multiple times in my program. I want to save the text as a variable, with line breaks separating each paragraph, and then insert this variable in the code wherever it's needed.

Based on the suggestion above, I have tried this:

>>blank = ""
>>repeated_text = ["paragraph 1.{blank}paragraph 2.{blank}.paragraph 3"]
{repeated text}

And also:

>>blank = ""
>>repeated_text = ["paragraph 1.", "paragraph 2", "paragraph 3"]

As well as trying out several other approaches. None of these result in a line break being displayed in the output (it seems instead they simply add no text (i.e. "") wherever the {blank} is inserted, resulting in no change to the text.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Hey there!

I just had an idea about using *html keyword and <p> and <br> HTML tags to achieve this. Check out https://www.guidedtrack.com/programs/15083/edit

Would this work for your use case?
