can I add line breaks at the description of an ICS? If so how? 🙂
Many thanks in advance!
I am not sure that it is passible in ICS format. I will need to check it.
I have found this here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/666929/encoding-newlines-in-ical-files?utm_medium=organic&utm_source=google_rich_qa&utm_campaign=google_rich_qa
I tested using \n as a line break but that did not work.
At the article it says:
“I had “ENCODING=quoted-printable” on the description. Once I removed that, Outlook displayed the new lines correctly.”
Maybe you can check this please?
Ok, I did a few more checks here.
is definitely working. However, it looks like that adding \n to the setup at the iCAL settings page the \n get’s escaped and is stored as \\n at the ICS file which is breaking the line break and \n get visually displayed.
May I kindly ask you to remove the escaping for \n at the ICS settings please?
have you changed this in your code? Regarding new lines in ICS? I will add this to extension plugin. 🙂
Is this part of description or summary?
it is at the “description” field where I placed \n but the Easy Appointments Extension is saving it to the ICS as \\n which is not working, it should simply be \n please.
So I did not changed the code I just played with the ICS text file to find out what the line break sign has to be.
