I think you are referring to the formatting of Private Messages (and Trusted List requests) sent through this website. Because the software doesn't preserve carriage returns and line feeds, but it does honor html coding, I've tried to get in the habit of adding the code <br> in my Private Messages where I want a line feed to appear in the message. It works!
Yes indeed.

Cannot the software be amended ?
Heck YES.

The <enter> key exists for a REASON.

It's a heck of a lot easier to type than pressing FOUR keys... or SIX, if you count having to use <shift> twice!
This is 4-1/2 years old. The formatting for private messages works much better now.
