The description field is intended as a single short descriptive value, like the occupation for an occupation fact type. It is exported to GEDCOM on the same line as the event tag, and is therefore limited to a single line (CONT and CONC are not allowed).

If you want to enter longer details for a fact, then you should be using the note (exported using the NOTE tag which does support CONC and CONT). Every fact in RootsMagic has a note field.
