Feature Suggestion

I recently started using the "Import Worklog" feature. At my work, it is common for me to have comments that include texts spread across multiple lines, separated with an "enter" (\n). However, when I import my work log with \n within, it is written as is inside the comment. It would be great if there was an option to translate special characters like that so they are displayed as I desire.

If I find the time, I will take a look at the source code and implement it myself.

Hi @kihayu - I have done some analysis on this and it seems like supporting this formatting itself is a big activity. I don't see any public library currently supporting this which can be used in JA.

Hence I am keeping this on hold until a feasible solution is found.

Reference: The following library is something to be looked at in future: @atlaskit/adf-utils. But if there are any other better suggestions from anyone please let me know.
