OK Guys, I’m feeling quite idiotic! I decided to try something… As I stated before I tried adding a hard return AFTER the variable. This didn’t work. So I thought to myself, “Self, lets just try adding a hard return BEFORE the variable and see if that works.” Well guys, I’m here to tell you that it DOES in fact work. Lectora would automatically delete any hard returns after a variable but would NOT delete it BEFORE the variable. Just for Future reference ya’all.
