Multi line questions in [qanda] block

duncwebb
Hi,

Is it possible to have multi-line questions in a [qanda] block? I currently have:

[qanda]

Some very long question that occupies more than the usual 80 char width for text documents etc. etc. blah?::
    The answer.

If I split the Q. across multiple lines, it is not correctly interpreted. The following fails to render correctly:

[qanda]

Some very long question that occupies more than the usual 80 char width for text
documents etc. etc. blah?::
    The answer.

I've tried terminating the first line with a :: but then it's seen as a separate question.

Does anyone know if it's possible to split the question over multiple lines and if so, how?

Many thanks,

Duncan Webb

It's not possible to split a question across multiple lines in AsciiDoc. This is a constraint that is inherited by the rules of a description list.

This is not the first time this question has come up. In the issue below, I describe a workaround that would allow you to split the question across multiple lines if defined as a document attribute.
