Hello.
I dont know why simple TXT datasources have only 1 line. I guess you could make them into CSV, but then the comma becomes a delimiter. Can we get multiple lines for text files when importing them as datasources?

A txt datasource is really single line. But there is nothing that hinders you to add a few lines and save it as a csv file to get multi line for titles etc. Technically almost no difference. Just more wording.

Yes, save the file as .csv and wrap each line in quotation marks " to avoid commas being an issue (then quotation marks might become an issue but they are rarer!)

The option to separate each new line into a new row would be good for TXT sources, but the workaround isn't too difficult.
