Hi @Bobonez 

Good question.

We would need to see detailed screenshots with how your Zap step is configured.

Looks like you may have some extra line breaks to remove.


The encoded characters "%0A%0A" represent two URL-encoded newline characters, specifically "Line Feed" characters. In URL encoding, special characters are represented by a "%" followed by their ASCII hexadecimal value.

  • "%0A" corresponds to the ASCII value for a Line Feed (LF) character, which is often used to represent a new line or line break in various programming languages and text formats.

So, "%0A%0A" essentially represents two consecutive new lines or line breaks. These encoded characters might be used in URLs or data encoding to indicate the presence of line breaks or to format text in a way that preserves line breaks when transmitted over the web.
