Single line macros with \n (folder name) break when re-opening GSA

edited July 2017 in Bugs

An error that's been around for a while but I've only recently started using it and decided to report it.

When you use a macro with a folder name that includes "n" at the beginning, for example... %spinfolder%, GSA will add a line break where there shouldn't be one. After further investigation, it seems that GSA is treating "\n" in the macro target, as a line break.

Example code:
%spinfolder-C:\Program Files (x86)\GSA Search Engine Ranker\new-posts\5-links\cool\template-awesome%

Save + reload:
%spinfolder-C:\Program Files (x86)\GSA Search Engine Ranker

Testing to make sure it's only with \n:
%spinfolder-C:\Program Files (x86)\GSA Search Engine Ranker\rew-posts\5-links\cool\template-awesome%

%spinfolder-C:\Program Files (x86)\GSA Search Engine Ranker\rew-posts\5-links\cool\template-awesome%

    yes indeed its a common issue, but SER can handle this during submission and should treat that new link in pathes as \n
