Can I get a leading empty line in an Email this issue template?


this seems very simple, but I am still not able to find any examples how to dot it...

We have prepared an email template with a footer.

We use this when manual emails are composed using the 'Email this issue' plugin.

I would like the Email template to have an initial line break/feed, so that the user don't need to start by doing a line break above the template footer.

However, it is not possible to simply put an empty starting line in the template, because that empty line is removed when saving the template.

So this:



Is saved as this:


And looks like this to the user:


I tried to find how line feed is done using velocity markup, but was not sucessful.

Eva, check out this discussion on stack overflow:

The last comment might work for you.




big thanks for quick answer.

I tried the examples from the link you provided, but it does not work.

I am not in a java context, it is through the Email This Issue plugin so it does not seem to recognize the velocity method calls.

I will proceed and submit a support case to the Email This Issue team.

That's a bummer.  I have the same plugin and like it a lot.  The Velocity is always tricky for me.  If you get an answer back from the vendor could you post it here?
