I presume you are using the Description aspect of the Editor Presentation to do this? If so, I read another forum post earlier today where a similar use case was raised and this is not possible at this time. See

If you are still interested or for others who are searching for the same, I figured a way to achieve this and posted the solution in the other post.

Hi Indradi, The mentioned solution doesn't seem to work on 5.0.2. Has anyone tried this in 5.0.2 yet?

Indradi - Brilliant.

Works great on 5.0.2
