Email with options - Body formatting issue

Helloo, 

 

I am currently using an email with options activity but I am having issues with the formatting of the "body" of the email. 

 

The body is entered as such:

As you can see, there is spacing between the paragraphs. 

 

When i input this text into the "Email with options" activity, my formatting dissapears and results in:

If needed, I can also have the body in HTML formatting.

Perhaps this will solve the issue? 

 

My Flow:

Compose: - Body = 

trim(first(split(last(split(body('Html_to_text'),'Sehr geehrte/r Requisitioner,')),'melden.')))

Thanks for your help.

You are using trim() in Compose-Body Action.

"The Trim function removes all spaces from a string of text except for single spaces between words. "

Remove trim and it will come as it is.

Thanks @Hardesh15 . 

 

I also realised that while trimming it removes the <br>.

 

I added these back into the "Email with options" activity and now it looks better.

I am very new to Automate however I have picked up items quick.  The error I am having is when I select send email with options to send a letter for approval to an external email it is all one block of text.  I type the text in the body with spaces and it send as one solid paragraph.

 

Any help would be great.
