Memo Field Formatting & New Line

Many field in ACT allow formatting options for the text being entered.  However, it seems that when I create a memo field, those options are not there.

Is there any way to add formatting?

 

I've also noticed that a memo field only allows a new line by Shift-Enter.

Is there any way to allow the Enter key to create a new line?

Re: Memo Field Formatting & New Line

The answer to both is no. The memo field is a special SQL field and does not allow formatting.
