How do we color the font with these modern text controls?

@Matthew

Are you aware of how to do a new line in the modern text box? Char(13) does not appear to work, you can do use quotes and a space with enter to do it but that way seems so broken.

Works:

“Example” & ”
” & “New Line”

Result:

Example
New Line

Doesn’t Work:

“Example” & Char(13) & “New Line”

Result:

ExampleNewLine

Just wanting to check if there is a different way to do this in the modern text control
