The Text Area field accepts text that spans over multiple lines. Like the Text field, this field can be added to a form to allow users to enter any kind of text.
This field does not accept decorative text. If a user wishes to use decorative text, they must use a Rich Text field.
The Text Area field allows line-breaks in text on a form. This field is useful when users want to enter long strings of text.
