Key in some text with next line characters and save.
The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. The reported behavior didn't existed with Pega 7.1.6. As part of Pega 7.1.7 release, modifications were made in RTE control to replace '/n' (new lines) or <br> tags with empty spaces. This caused the reported problem in Pega 7.1.7.
This issue is resolved by hotfix item HFix-20165.
This HFix reverts the changes made for RTE control in Pega 7.1.7 so that the behavior is similar to what we had in Pega 7.1.6 version.
