I'm trying to update a description field in a string. I want to add a newline between each update, I just cannot figure out how.
I've tried the normals like \n \\n etc. and I've looked for Expression functions like Newline, char.
How can I do this?
Answering my own question as I found a work around. I used
and this seemed to work fine 🙂 If there is an easier way though I would still like to hear it.
I have the same problem and still cannot make it work 😞
Did you use the json code in a "Variables\Append to String" Action or maybe Compose?
My goald we be to just enter a new line after the built string variable:
Hey tre4B - Glad you figured this out. I am not able to get it to work for me however. I put the string you shared below into an Expression in my Multi-Line Text Field (Comments-). See below.
How did you get your solution to work?

I was looking all over the place trying to figure out how to add a CRLF (or LF) to the end of strings I was writing to a file. Simply creating a variable and initializing it with a <RETURN> key and then referencing the variable in my expression ended up with something like this (as a test):
join(createArray(convertTimeZone(body('Get_event_(V2)')['Start'],'UTC','Central Standard Time','dddd M/d/yyyy h:mmtt'),convertTimeZone(body('Get_event_(V2)')['End'],'UTC','Central Standard Time','dddd M/d/yyyy h:mmtt')),variables('CarriageReturn'))
This wrote my dates to my file (stored on OneDrive for Biz) which then showed up on my PC (like magic) with this content:
Thursday 2/7/2019 10:00AM
Thursday 2/7/2019 10:30AM
So simple...yet so difficult to figure out!
This answer would not cover a variety of diferrent cases, Howerver, if you would like to add new line between two daynamic values within a whole string, i just typed the enter key and it worked for me.
so it will look like below:
Please note a single quotation at the beginning of the [Daynamic value1] and at the ending of [Daynamic value2].
All of the above approaches fail.
However, I did stumble upon a setting in the Properties of the 'Plain Text Content Controls'
And then this answer helped me: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3091524/what-are-carriage-return-linefeed-and-form-feed
It helped me because it introduced '\r' as the 'Carriage Return' that I was looking for.
