I had the same problem a while ago.
I worked around it by creating empty xml-tags for linebreaks and assigning \n as suffix for these tags. Not very beautiful, but I did not find any other way. Quark's XML-Import Feature is not yet useful for normal desktop users.

Frank & "Shellex",

If you could post a snippet of your XML code, maybe we can figure out a better solution.

Thanks,

Once you have a placeholder against discription dragged onto the layout. Go to placeholder tab on the palette and select description and in the suffix field give \p.
These escape characters are replaced with proper white space which is hard enter after every appearance of description.
