When exporting multi line fields (e.g. description) to csv; they are mapped across multiple rows instead of a single field

Hi, 

When i use the export to CSV functionality there seems to go something wrong with multi line fields.

Instead of turn enters into spaces or something; JIRA puts each enter on a new row in the CSV rendering the CSV useless.

This seems to be a bug; is there any workaround for?

Encountered this same issue. when exporting to CSV all goes well when using the current fields option AND as long as you do not include a field like description which has multiple lines, potentially comma's etc. the wrapping of that field as one field seems to go wrong during the export.

Would be very helpful if this can be fixed! Bit of a shame to have to turn to paid add-ons for something this basic.

Kind regards,

Max
