Advanced Rules in HP SmartStream Designer Concatenate a Line Break

HP Recommended
HP SmartStream Designer 13
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Hi, I need to create a rule where a line break needs to be concatenated if the expression evaluates to FALSE but I can't find a way to insert a line break in the advanced rule window. This is what my rule looks like:



THEN(CONCAT(FIELD("First")," and ",FIELD("Spouse-First")," ",FIELD("Last")))

ELSE(CONCAT(FIELD("First")," ",FIELD("Last"),"\n", FIELD("Spouse-First")," ", FIELD("Spouse-Last")))


So what this does is the person's last name is the same as their spouse's last name it will show as: John and Jane Smith

If not is should look like this:

John Smith

Jane Doe


I thought that inserting \n would do the trick but instead it actually shows up in preview. i.e: John Smith\nJane Doe

Is there a way to do this?  I know I could have 2 rules setup in a way to acomplish this but I want to know if it's possible to insert line breaks and have only 1 rule. This has been bugging me for a while.  Thanks for the help!
