Question: does the BC API ignore paragraphs / new lines / carriage returns in text like General Collateral? Or do we have to submit the data in a certain way to the preserve the formatting? Currently, it seems when we submit general collateral with paragraphs / new lines, in the search results, they are not preserved (we tried using actual keyboard carriage returns as well as including the codes for new line and carriage returns e.g. ‘\n’ but neither gets preserved so we wanted to confirm). Currently via the web, it seems the formatting is preserved and that’s why we’re checking.
Response: Legacy data may not exactly preserve mainframe formatting. API general collateral preserves whatever text is submitted. Using “\n” for a new line or paragraphs will work.
