Is there a way to stop a flow emailv2 from adding a line break when I bring in the string value of a SharePoint multi line column? It keeps adding a line break on top and below the text, which is making the email format look weird.

For example below, I want the Please help me reset my password to be in the same line with the Request Description text.

@eshin087 your screenshot and the text are not exactly the same so we can't tell if you've got an extra line break <br> in your email body. For me, whether or not I've used code view, a multi line of text column doesn't insert a line break unless I specifically tell it to.

I was able to resolve the issue by changing the text from plain text to rich text. Thank you for confirming that it should normally not add a line break, that made me think to test the type of text.
