String Replace

Post by essexmate » Tue Feb 23, 2021 6:19 pm

Hi, I'm using the String Replace app https://www.enfocus.com/en/appstore/pro ... ng-replace to clean up an incoming email in a text file.

My problem is that I need to create a new line (line break) from a single line text string. My text line looks similar to this....
PDF location, PDF name<br>PDF location, PDF name<br>PDF location, PDF name<br>

How do I replace the <br> with a line break character that the String Replace app understands to make the text look like this....

PDF location, PDF name
PDF location, PDF name
PDF location, PDF name


String replace <br>=?

Hoping someone can help. Thank you.

Yes. As you can imagine it just replaces <br> with the string \n
