Flow Approval Email showing Markdown \n \n

My approval workflow was formatting the text fine until last Wednesday but now is showing \n in the email details instead of a new line. No changes had been made to the flow.

 

Last week it was showing correctly with new lines

I've tried deleting and recreating the approval action but still new new line is appearing as \n. Any ideas why this potential bug has just occurred and what is causing it?

I'm having the same issue too. I don't work for Microsoft but this came up on another thread as well:

Hi @LeonAIL@Anonymous@rele_2018,

 

Yes, the approval email in Outlook Web not showing line breaks is an issue that has been identified.

A fix will be rolling out this week.

You could keep an eye on the updates to the Thread provided by @Anonymous. If it has been fixed, I will also post back.

 

Best Regards,

Barry

Hi all,

 

Just to mention, same issue here too. This is really really frustrating. I've been working on a huge PowerApp, with multiple Flows, and multiple different approvals running. This is to be rolled out soon, but the fact that things like this keep happening is no good.
