Send Photos via email - Body: field
« on: May 14, 2017, 02:23:21 am »
When I enter two lines of text in the Body: section of the Send Photos via email dialog window.
The text in the body appears in the email as one continuous line

Is there a command for a carriage return?

Entered
{event},  {headline}; {credit}

Appear in email
{event},  {headline}; {credit} http://webaddress.com

Yes, {nl} will give you a newline.

Thanks Kirk.

I see the {nl} works in Mail, but not in Outlook

Peter,

On what OS platform?  Sending or receiving?

HI Kirk,

Using MacOS Sierra v 10.12.4 and this is in sending an email. I have the system displaying the email prior to sending

Let me know if you need any other information

Regards
Peter

Hmm.  I'm not sure what I can do to make Outlook recognize the same newline that Apple Mail does.

You'll just have to manually edit the email to suit your taste before sending if you must use Outlook.

This is a quote from RFC2822 (Internet Message Format):

   Messages are divided into lines of characters.  A line is a series of
   characters that is delimited with the two characters carriage-return
   and line-feed; that is, the carriage return (CR) character (ASCII
   value 13) followed immediately by the line feed (LF) character (ASCII
   value 10).  (The carriage-return/line-feed pair is usually written in
   this document as "CRLF".)

Could it be that {nl} evaluates to CR (only) on a Mac and that Apple Mail honors it while different MUAs (possibly on Windows) stick to the RFC?

I found a simple solution to resolve my issue, using Shift+Enter to create a new line in PM,  this is recognized in Outlook as a carriage return (line break)
