Maintain line breaks in auto posts

In auto posts, line breaks are eliminated. This messes up formatting and makes auto post an all but useless feature to anyone who writes long captions or uses line breaks as part of their normal formatting. Maintaining line breaks in auto posts would make this feature much more usable.

    For anyone looking for a solution to this in 2020, just get https://gramspacer.com and it will fix your line breaks every single time. It's ridiculous IG doesn't have this natively!

    I found a website that does this for you: http://apps4lifehost.com/Instagram/CaptionMaker.html

     

    It's just annoying because you have to copy and past your captions back and forth. It would be great if they added this!

    Any word on when this will be supported? I just moved from the free version of Buffer to the paid version of Later and assumed this would be supported.

    Really diminishes the value of auto posting if I have to do some hack work arounds for something 99% of us need.  Time to switch to a different WYSIWYG (like maybe the one I’m typing it now????)

    This is a must. Every Instagram platform already has this.

    Hi! For formatting line breaks that are maintained in auto-publishing, you can press "enter" after the last character before you want to implement a break. Make sure you press "enter" directly after the last character - there can not be a "space" beforehand. Then on the new blank line, you must include a placeholder, such as ". . . " or "––––". Then again, directly after the last character in the placeholder, you press enter again and can begin a new section. It would be typed as the following: end of paragraphenterplaceholderenter. Hope this was helpful!

    As a work around try pointing a period "." between the paragraphs. Works well to keep them apart. :-)
