    Solved: RibbonX XML: How can I put in a carriage return or new line within " " marks

    In a screentip I want to separate two paragraphs of text by a empty line.
    To do that I need to add a new line or a couple CRs. How do I do that?

    Example:
    screentip="Hi, how are you doing. Thank you I am fine."

    The above line gives me:
    Hi, how are you doing. Thank you I am fine.

    What I want is:
    Hi, how are you doing.

    Thank you I am fine.

    Try

    [vba]
    screentip="Hi, how are you doing.$$Thank you I am fine."
    [/vba]

    where each $ = ampersand pound 13 semicolon (no spaces)

    Actually putting the into the VBA tags got processed, and the code was not displayed

    In the RibbonX:

    Like Paul explains.

    Or via callback:

    Sub GetSuperTip(Control As IRibbonControl, ByRef supertip)
    supertip = "Super tip text line 1" & vbCr + vbCr & _
    "Super tip text line 2."
    End Sub

    thanks Paul, thanks gmaxey.

    One addition:
    Screentips do not handle multiple lines. But Supertips do.
