Is it possible when creating lists in SharePoint to have the decriptions of the list on more lines?

It currently looks like this:

I would much rather it looked like this:

1 Meget Lille
2 Lille
3 Moderat
4 Stort
5 Meget stort

By default it's not possible, SharePoint is rendering description as plain text using <div>{Your description}</div>. Here only possible way to inject your css using SPFx extension and applying while-space:pre in this div

Below are some articles which can help you to inject your custom CSS using SPFx exntesion.


Keep in mind that Microsoft may change page elements and styles at any time, rendering your custom CSS useless. It is preferrable to use well-known HTML element placeholders.
