How to import / export Tasks with Description with line breaks, steps, bullets, etc?

When I export a task with a typical description:
Step 1: ....
Step 2: ....
Step 3: .....

When importing these tasks, everything appears together:
Step 1: ...., Step 2: ...., Step 3: .....

Is there a way to import the tasks and the order is respected?


I would like the source format to be respected

Hello @Jaqueline Cuatepitzi Bastida 

Welcome to the community.

To what format are you exporting the data? And what format are you using for the import?

When I export Search results using Export Excel CSV and then use the CSV import, the formatting is retained.
