Forms render differently using TopicInteractionPlugin

In the following situation:

  • TopicInteractionPlugin has been installed with all dependencies and has been activated,
  • In preferences, a skin is set to topicinteraction ,
information contained in data form is displayed in different way than previously.Exclamation mark (used to ommit auto link feature) is displayed. Moreover, all lines of text are displayed in the same line as can be seen here:

I noted that when I repeated new line characters in textarea field (two "Enter" key strokes instead of one) text is properly formatted. I think this behavior is consistent with formatting rules: http://foswiki.org/System/TextFormattingRules

But when TopicInteractionPlugin is disabled, I don't need to do such tricks - text in textarea field is properly splitted to separate lines. I do not need to strike Enter twice.

You are right that the standard rendering of lines separated buy a single return character is to run them together. I just tested a textarea field on one of my installations (running 1.1.9 with TopicInteractionPlugin installed) and separated lines by two returns, and after saving the topic, the two lines were displayed with a line break. If you observed anything else, it was probably a bug in an earlier version. One other option would be to use <br> (line break tag) with a single return, but it's probably easier just to use two returns.
