Carriage returns not respected in Text Area and Long Text Area fields
Last updated 2021-04-06 ·Reference W-3604927 ·Reported By 59 users
In Lightning Experience, the text area field displays the carriage return as "<br>", and the values in that field are not broken into separate lines. The long text area field does not respect the carriage return at all, and the values in that field are not broken into separate lines.
1. Log into Salesforce in Lightning Experience
2. Create text area field and long text area field on an object
3. Populate at least one record on that object with values with carriage returns in the text area field and long text area field.
4. Run a report that displays the text area field and long text area field for that object.
