How to put carriage return on button

I would like to put a dynamic text on a button, with many lines of text. 
Something that would look like : 


Innovation Sales  5765$  +24%
Innovation Products 14 "

where all numbers are measures. probably color-coded too to be red for negative.
This works well with a text &image item, but it cannot be clicked to redirect on the innovation sheet.

So I thought I could put all this on a button.  I didn't succeed to line break. I tried & Chr(10) & Chr(13) but it didn't work ?

Same here. chr(10) does not work for buttons.

Bump, it appears the common "Qlik Sense Line Break" solution of using Char(10) & Char(13) does not work as a line break on button labels.

I think the only solution is using CSS.

Try this:

1 - Get the id of your button object you want to change: right clik button on your object -> share -> Incorporate. And then you can see the ID_YOUR_BUTTON_OBJECT. Eg: wCmgk

2: add a multi-kpi object

3: add in your multi-kpi-object on appearence > styles this css code, with the ID of your object.

div[tid="ID_YOUR_BUTTON_OBJECT"] text span {
      white-space: break-spaces !important;
       font-size: initial;
