How to properly update Textarea field with Line Break via REST API

I have an issue with updating  Textarea field with Line Break via REST API. 

For example, if I update a field via API like this: (%0A is the URL encode of linebreak)


The tableview will not show the linebreak: it displays it without linebreak. However, if I edit it, it does show the linebreak properly.

I tried to use [entry.text.replaceCRLFWithBR] & listview instead, it doesn't work either.



If I use the edit window to "save" the edit, the tableview will show the linebreak properly. 

- The top one below is the entry with "edit" window from tableview.

- The bottom one below is the entry updated via REST API.



Any idea what I should do to fix the issue? May I should pass something else as linebreak for REST API instead of %0A? 

Thank you.
