the simplest solution is to try using \n in your input. But it randomly in your input. It should work

You can use triple quoted strings in Python to preserve formatting, like so:

choice = input("""Which one of these do you like to eat the best:
1. cake,
2. biscuits,
3. pizza? 
> """)

@CodeLongAndPros if you are talking about the console it only goes back to normal if you make it really small, but then it cuts off a lot of the text and gets covered by the search and clear bar.
