copy/paste carriage returns on PC platforms??

Recommended Posts

What do users of the PC (Win10) version of VWs use to insert a Carriage Return/Line Feed into a field box of the OI palette?

On the Mac I was using I could simply write my text using the text command and create a second line with the return key, copy into the clip board my two rows of text complete with the invisible CR/LF control character and paste it into one of the detail tag's title field and two rows of my text would appear above the tag's horizontal line. But all that emerges when I paste on the PC is the characters before the CR/LF; everything afterwards is missing.

Existing tags with two lines of text created on the Mac display on the PC correctly and you can edit the regular characters either side of the CR/LF but you cannot paste the sequence of visible and hidden characters into another detail tag. Also noted that the info palette doesn't do a CR/LF in the field box on the PC whereas the MAC does.
