Send an email (V2) - doesn't support line breaks from SP list multi-line column type?

In a SP list, I have a multi-line column type where we enter paragraphs with spaces between the paragraphs.  Send Email (V1) correctly shows these spaces . Send Email (V2) runs the sentences together and basically makes this V2 useless for my situation.

 

Is there a setting I'm missing or is this how it is?

@ChristianAbata 

Doesn't that creates line breaks for text I enter in the flow itself?  But what about a data field I bring in from a SharePoint list?  How do I get those line breaks to appear?

 

If you look at the below Evaluation Notes field, that field in SP has say 4 paragraphs with line breaks in-between each paragraph.  I need those line breaks to also show up in the email

@bryanc78  what you can do is add a compose value to replace your /n or ?n to <br>, this can be made using expression

 

your expresion could be like replace('YOUR SHAREPOINT COLUMN HERE', '/n','<br>')

 

then you can use the compose output to send it to mail.

@ChristianAbata 

 

That worked like a charm.  The last compose did not have the code visible but I just used the original code and replaced it with decode.

 

Thank you for taking the time to create this tutorial.  Very useful!
