    Repeatable Textstrings are being merged into one string on import

    As stated in the title Repeatable Textstrings are being merged into one string on import. Steps to reproduce:

    1. Enter > 1 values using the Repeatable textstrings editor
    2. Export data
    3. Import data

    what version of Umbraco are you using at the moment ?

    I know there was an issue with Repeatable Textstrings and new line values (as outlined by lee in this Nested Content issue

    the Issue tracker appears to be off at the moment, so i don't know the exact status of the issue:

    but i think it's only a recently fixed thing, so it might be something to check (when it's back up)

    Hi, Umbraco version 7.7.3, (uSync.BackOffice (uSync.Core [uSync.Content:]

    I've read the issue you mention, but progress seems to be stale. I would like to help resolve this, but I really have no time at all.

    The upside is that I ended up just changing the data type to Textarea and all data where automatically converted and newlines recognized. In the template, I only had to split the output string to an array.

    Also, compared to Repeatable strings, Textarea seems like a simpler interface for multine strings.

    Seeing this too with with Repeatable Text Strings \ MultipleTextString property types:

    Umbraco 7.10.4 USync 4.0.5 USync Core 6.05 USync ContentMappers 4.1.2 ContentEdition 4.1.2

    So the Umbraco bug fix referenced doesn't seem to work in this instance.

    Tried exporting the Content as a package and reimporting, as I think uSync uses document types below the hood, but the reimport failed - this seems to be a surprisingly tricky thing to do without getting database conflicts.

    Anyway, it exports with the CRLF in there:


    The output from uSync does too:

    But the re-imports using uSync merges the line in to onetwothree.

    As hinted at above I'm not having a good time testing this with packages so may come back to that later.
