Line return character in data fields

Recommended Posts

We used to trick data fields into accepting a paragraph return by copying the text in a text object, including a paragraph return, then pasting that into a data field window. If we do that with version 2012 though, the paragraph return is messy (.pdf prints it as a rectangle with an X through it). You can only see this in an exported .pdf, the rectangle doesn't display in VW.

Thing is, in a file converted from 2010 to 2012, the paragraph returns in our data fields stay fine. It's only when we create a fresh one with our old method that a problem occurs. So that means there is some ASCI character that can create a clean paragraph return in a data field. Anyone know what that character is?
