tags don't work

If I insert these line break tags into a dialogue line, it is shown as working for two seconds and then goes back. When I click on the dialogue to edit, the br tags aren't there. Help?

I mean the < br > tags, by the way.

You're right that the breaks appear to work, and then disappear. We strip out everything but bold and italics from the text, so that means your br tags disappear when the element is saved to the server.

In most screenplays, you denote a pause or break in dialog with a parenthetical like (beat). That creates a line break and might do what you're thinking about. Does that help?
