Line Break/Return in FileRepository

Hi,

I'm developing some functions with FileRepository.

I'm writing some lines of text into a .txt file.

I tried service of CreateTextFile & AppendToTextFile, with them all text will be written into same 1 line, no matter '/n /r \n \r' are included or not.

For example, I want to show:

Line 1

Line 2

Line 3

and it always shows:

Line 1Line 2Line 3

 

Any advise?

Re: Line Break/Return in FileRepository

Hello,

 

\n works for me:

 Things["SystemRepository"].CreateTextFile({
	path: 'Test.txt',
	data: 'line1\nline2\nline3',
	overwrite: true
});

Can you provide sample code where it doesn't?

I tested it again, and '\n' works!
