Is it possible to add <CR><LF> to response messages?

For example: I'd like for the following text to appear WITH THE SPACES between lines.
Your backup job for 'xyz.mp4' was been triggered.
A new record for this asset was created in the database.

Hey there (drew-berkemeyer)! Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, I'm assuming you're talking about having this displayed in the response from a Custom Action action dialog?
yes (jeff-hodges) , that's correct.
I'm trying to test out a few things right now to see if there's a line separator character that we support. I'll get back to you shortly!
(drew-berkemeyer) doesn't look like we support any kind of rich text formatting right now in this form. If we were to add support, it would likely be markdown rather than html due to it being more portable and easier to render.
Would markdown support work for you?
I did a little experimenting and it looks like there's an immediate fix that just requires a single-line CSS change that would enable \n as a multi-line separator in the description field. I also explored adding full-blown markdown support and it turned out pretty well, but that's going to take more approval.
I'm opening a ticket and a PR now, I'll keep you in the loop on this as it develops!

Thank you for the feedback (jeff-hodges) ! I'll MD would be great. I'll check out the CSS fix as well. I appreciate you looking into this.

(drew-berkemeyer) I just merged the code for line breaks with the \n character into our develop branch which will like likely get released tomorrow morning.
Unfortunately markdown is a no-go for now, but I did make sure that support is in the brief for the next version of Custom Actions.

There was a hold-up in testing, but it should be going out tomorrow morning (drew-berkemeyer)!

Feature has been released (drew-berkemeyer). Did you get a chance to try it out yet?

Hi (jeff-hodges) , thanks for the update. I did not get to try it yet. I will try to get to it tomorrow.
