Allow Multi Line Question for Text Box Tool

The Text Box tool has a tickbox allowing a multi line "answer" to be supplied for the question.

But it does not allow you to easily setup the question as multi line i.e. with carriage returns


Please allow the ability to enter multi line text for the Question of the Text Box Tool.


At the moment, I force carriage returns to happen, by entering a bunch of space characters in the "Enter the text or question to be displayed" box of of the "Text Box" tool. This is obviously not ideal.


Example of desired layout for App question:

example showing how entering a bunch of spaces can be used to force a carriage return:
