I'm sure that I have done them in the past. But when I try to do one now, the sumission form merges the different paragraphs into one long piece.

I also vaguely remember that including a blank line in between paragraphs keeps the text of paragraphs from being merged. I certainly hope that functionality has not changed. Mashing together paragraphs would make the reviews more difficult to read.

Hi Steve -

I'm checking on this with our contribution tech team, as soon as I have additional details I will confirm them with you here.

Hi Steve -

I'm just following up here to confirm that the display is working as designed.  Currently single, double, and triple new lines in Plot Summaries will be stripped, as we are no longer allowing paragraph breaks for summaries.  This display is intentional, so you won't be able to add paragraph breaks in this data section.

Please let me a small addition. We can add the paragraph breaks and they will be saved, but then are displayed without breaks. At least, for now.

I'd imagine a lot of plot summaries will have to be rewritten for compatibility with the newer display mechanic.
