Prepopulated text in Textareas with line breaks

Please replace the ??? with your data!

Hi Oliver,

I would like to offer a form which uses a pre populated text that can be send to the receipient in a textarea. Since this text is a little longer, it needs some line breaks.

Of course I found a way to show the text prepopulated in the textarea but can´t find a way to use the line breaks. "[br]" (of course with <> but that wouldn´t show up here) or "\\n" does not work and is displayed as regular text such as

"blablabla blabla[br]laberrabbarber"

instead of

"blablabla blabla

How can I manage that?

Unfortunately the form configuration doesn't allow to enter carriage returns (since it's only a single line input field).

A workaround (not too elegant though) would be to add enough spaces after the  last letter of a given line to enforce a new line.
