New Lines in Long String presented as description

Hi,

I have a script which updates a custom attribute of "Long String" type.
The attribute is updated with a value of "String" (Java) type containing "\r\n".
When looking at the result in RTC I see no new lines - the text appears in one line.

Thanks,
Moti

Is it a Long String or Long HTML attribute? In the case of HTML, you would
have to use <p> or <br>.
If it is a Long String and not HTML, where are you seeing this: In the
Eclipse UI or in the Web UI work item editor?
When you say 'script', do you mean a plain java client implemention or a
shell script that uses the rest interface?

It's a long string and I want to see it in the eclipse client.
Saying "script" means plain java client implementation.
(sorry for the ambiguity)
