Microsoft Form Long Text Field New Line Break
Why is long text field not preserving their new line break when viewing the result of the form. This should be an issue that need to be fixed.

Yes, review answers is unusable if pupils answer with code in some programming language. I can only get newline in Excel, but then it is double work to grade them.
The suggested answer of using Flow is not usable. I should not open Flow, then E-mail just to grade an answer.

There are some things in this world that are just baffling. Here we have a very obvious problem -rendering this aspect of Forms almost useless, yet there are only 41 or so votes to fix it. I am willing to bet there are only 41 votes because only 41 people bothered enough by the issue to search and find this thread. Now it could also mean that not many people are actually bothered by the issue, or else surely more people would have found this thread to cast their vote. It is what it is and I guess we are just lucky to have the parts without issue.

I can't believe this has so few votes.
I think these 3 other threads are the same (an additional 25 votes):

Any updates on when this will happen? I would love to see this feature implemented.
Yes, please add the ability to respond with multiple lines. Very difficult to get feedback all on one line.
This absolutely needs to happen. Would love to integrate multi-paragraph responses into Flow using forms, but it mucks up the line breaks.
