Hello. I am putting together a sermon introducing the book of Joel. I would like to be able to put an outline of the book on a slide. Whenever I press 'enter' in the editor it starts a new line but also can only be a new slide in the editor. I cannot highlight several lines and make a slide from them using the 'add slides from selected text' button. It is grayed out when I select more than one line.

Thanks.

Unfortunately this currently is a limitation - the developers are thinking about how to address it.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I'll export a blank slide and add the text with PowerPoint instead until this ability is added.

I've found this too. Entering a line break with shift+return instead of return didn't work either, although it does in many applications. I think entering line breaks within a slide would allow for more control over the text wrapping, which would be useful for a few reasons, such as allowing the text to be larger with shorter lines, adding  line breaks at the desired places in longer text, being able to add additional text such as a resource title, and of course adding multiples lines of quotation within a single slide as you note (although being able to do it the way you describe without having to edit the slide would be better).
