Default Carriage Returns aren't showing up

I'm working on a tool that uses Bridge2Java to interface a Java Servlet with CorelDRAW Scripting. The tool parses a Tab-Delimited Values file and fills in a CDR Template with values for the user to download. I'm having a hard time with carriage returns showing up when inserted into paragraph text boxes (I've tried with artistic text as well). It's no problem if a web form is used as the front-end, but when using a CSV, the carriage returns just don't appear! Do you have any advice?

maybe the problem is that some of CSV files are using only #13 or #10 and not both - which might be required (who knows) by CorelDraw (or what?) in order to see linebreak.
Try to reparse CSV and replace CR (or maybe there's a single LF) with CRLF

CR=chr 13, LF=chr 10
I would use (if it's possible):
writefile csv, replace(replace(replace(readFile(csv),vbCrLf,vbCr),vbLf,vbCr),vbCr,vbCrLf)

Thanks for the advice! I added a java method that replaces all \n's with \r\n, and that worked. Good thinking!

In fact, all you need is '\r' [Chr(13)]. Line feed character ('\n', Chr(10)) is ignored by CorelDRAW.
