How do I insert a line break between two strings in an action/input field on Zapier?

I’d like to insert a line break when I’m selecting two strings into an action/input field.

This is what it looks like in Zapier

but it ends up looking like this, with no line break or even space between them

I’ve seem another post suggesting these options…

  1. Press enter
  2. <br>
  3. \n
  4. \r
  5. [:newline:] - matches newline (\n) characters
  6. [:return] - matches carriage-return (\r) characters

However when I try these, the string ends up like this, so I feel like I’m missing some assumed knowledge.  I also can’t see a suitable option in Formatter.  Any assistance appreciated!

Hi @MeganZ 

It may be that the Description field is a single line text field that does not support line breaks.

Thanks @Troy Tessalone - great suggestion, that hadn’t occurred to me.  I have checked in the app, and I am able to insert a linebreak into the description here.

Some Zap app functionality may not match the functionality capable in the app itself.

We would nee more context about which app is being used in the Zap step.

Thanks for the intel
