QUESTION

Apparently the text box in Esri's Extension manager doesn't wrap text (10.0 SP2).

enter image description here

As a workaround, I'm trying to insert newline characters into the xml file, but haven't found anything that works.

Here's the xml:

<Extensions>
  <Extension id="AmberGIS_ExtensionMgrAddin_ExtMgrExtension" class="ExtMgrExtension" productName="Extension State Manager" showInExtensionDialog="true" autoLoad="true">
    <Description>Lets you specify extensions that will be \n turned off automatically when document closes.</Description>
  </Extension>
</Extensions>

Does anyone know how to put a newline character into the add-in xml config file?

ANSWER

I should have searched SO first, I would have found this answer.

This seems to work:

<Extensions>
  <Extension id="AmberGIS_ExtensionMgrAddin_ExtMgrExtension" class="ExtMgrExtension" productName="Extension State Manager" showInExtensionDialog="true" autoLoad="true">
    <Description>Lets you specify extensions that will be &#13;&#10; turned off automatically when document closes.</Description>
  </Extension>
</Extensions>
