BUG - 'Set variable' action input field does not allow multi-line/carriage return

To whom it may concern:

 

ISSUE:

The input field for the 'Set variable' action does not allow multi-line input nor carriage returns, whether entered or pasted in.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE ISSUE:

Try both entering multi-line content and pasting it in to the 'Set variable' action input field.

WORKAROUND 1:

Read in the contents of a variable from a file. This workaround is cumbersome.

WORKAROUND 2:

Use 'Display input dialog' and set to 'multiline'. Rename output variable as required. Non-cumbersome workaround.

PAD VERSION:

2.5.80.21056, INSTALLED 3/4/2021

WINDOWS VERSION:

Windows 10 Pro 10.0.19041 Build 19041

SUGGESTED RESOLUTION:

It appears to me that setting the properties of the 'Set variable' input field to allow multi-line input and carriage returns and recompiling the application would solve this. A larger input field would be desirable. Using 'Display input dialog' and setting to 'multiline' appears an adequate workaround, however.

 

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
