Did anyone manage to text format the field for 'description' in a .cvs-file?

The thing is: I need line breaks. There are several options to format text: bold, italic, headers, links, etc, but no line breaks/ carriage returns. HTML-codes like < br > nor sql-code like \n are ignored.

Hope somebody has a clue :)

Frage noch aktuell? In der csv Datei müssen LF sein. Bearbeiten in uMap nicht möglich, sonst sind die LF weg.

@Otto : that's what I would like to do. Where to find the rules for description formatting through csv import ?

1) I capture my data in Google spreadsheet quite normally with Enter for line breaks.

2) I copy the data into a new worksheet and change the character (10) to "\N". =WECHSELN('Erfassung OCCU-NOTE-SOUR'!B1;ZEICHEN(10);"\n")

3) I export the worksheet into a csv file.

4) I import the csv file into uMap.

5) A change in uMap is not possible. A change destroys the LF.

Works reliably.
