Export Hosts with cr/lf in comment

    Exporting Host to a csv file with cr/lf in comment leads to an inconsistent csv file.
    Is this a bug and if will it get fixed...
    Best regards, Max

    HI Max
    Thanks for reporting that issue.
    What do you mean exactly with "inconsistent"?

    I had the same problem. What Max means of incosistent is that the CR/LF is translated directly into the export, so some lines will start with that part of the comment.

    I am not sure if adding "" around will make the CSV importer reconize it as a blob of text insted of a new line.

    Anyways, its quite annoying. Perhaps a "search-and-replace" for CR/LF with " ." (space period) or something would be good to avoid these situations.

    Thank you Esben. I can reproduce the problem. It will be fixed with the next patch, probably before end of the year.
