I want to show a little text in a message box, using GeOutString(GeLoadString(MY_ID), GEMB_OK);
Wonder if there's a possibility to get breaks into that text. \n does not work.

\n should work.
This does not work?

I've not seen it work on Mac but it does work on Windows.

No, it does not.
When I put "\n" into the text, it just prints "\n" into the message box. It's not replaced by a line break
Well, it's not too dramatic. Would just have been nice.

Oh, yes it does!
At least up to R11 for sure. But I use MessageDialog(). Here is a line of code:
On Windows, this prints as two lines in the dialog. Can't check this one in R11 since TreeView right-click context menus aren't working (darn - post to come). Maybe a difference between MessageDialog() and GeOutString() perhaps?

Hey, you are right!
But it only works if I insert the "\n" in my Code. If the string loaded via GeLoadString() contains "\n" it's being ignored. Strange...

GeLoadString() might be stripping EOL characters (?). You could try the Unicode \uXXXX equivalent and see if that passes through unscathed.

I'm at exact the same issue right now, are there any news on this?
I'm loading error messages from resources. It works when using Windows CRLFs to separate lines, but I would consider this as an ugly hack:
MY_ERRORDLG_MESSAGE "This works in Mac and Windows
if divided with CR+LF but it's fugly";
The correct way would be to use the Unicode Line Separator (U+2028) like this:
MY_ERRORDLG_MESSAGE "This works in Mac\u2028but not on Windows!";
Ayn third option that I've overlooked?

Have you tried using the "\u000D" for carriage return (CR)?

No, I have not - as it's defined as legacy in Unicode.
It actually does work though, thanks.

Please use the vertical bar sign "|" to seperate lines, for example "First Line|Second Line".
