    I'm having issues implementing the Card style sheet.

    Before adding the sheet, the regular card view had pretty much what I wanted: display the images and when clicking on them to be taken to a link. After adding the Card Style and moving the CardsContent as per the exercise, images were displayed because I gave the header Big Img, but the images are no longer clickable. How can I keep the images as links with this new style?

    Is it possible to nest cards?

    Example: My data includes one table with all movie information, as in the example above; but my data includes a second, simple table that includes Movie Name in Column A (as an index), Character Name in Column B, and a hyperlink to Character Backstory in Column C. I can then run a query to say "Show me all the characters appearing in X-Men".

    Assuming my main card is identical to the ones above, I want to add a nested card that shows all the characters that appear in that movie, with links to their Character Backstory. Is that at all possible? Alternately, is it possible to nest a table inside a card?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Patricia Flewwelling,

    It is nit possible to nest cads into another card or to nest a view in another view.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    I have a URL in a column in my sheet that I'd like to display a link for if that cell is populated.  I figured out how to do this using markers if there is always a URL in my column, but if the URL isn't there I don't want anything to be displayed.  How would I do that?

    I figured it out.  I just used something like this:

    <p><a href="{{My URL}}" target="_blank">Attachment</a></p>

    If the marker {{My URL}} is blank in the Sheet data then no hyperlink will be created.

    OK, new question.  Say I have a cell in my sheet data with a big text blob in it that was entered from a Google form.  It has line breaks in it that don't translate well when displayed in card view.  Any suggestions on how to convert them to cleaner <br> 's or some other solution?
