Importing long fields with text breaks


#1

I’ve got a bunch of longer text fields with a number of line breaks throughout, but I’m not sure how to import these. I’ve got them in Filemaker and going out and then back in via CSV, but the breaks vanish when they go into CSV and then aren’t represented at all in Airtable. Is there a code used in the CSV import to properly display line breaks in long text fields? I know “\n” works in formulas, but when importing this isn’t recognised by Airtable as a line break.

This would also be handy, I suspect, in the formula field I’m using to try to convert a long text field with some bold and italics encoding into simple HTML. I can’t seem to convert the line breaks in a long text field into
tags.

Any help on either issue would be great!
