LOG_MESSAGE - Ignore escape characters

veddycentveddycent Global Mapper UserPosts: 69
Hi all,

I'm writing %LAYER_DIR% to a user set log file (SET_LOG_FILE USER_FILENAME =%LOG_FILE_URL% APPEND_TO_FILE=YES) but the new line escape character \n in %LAYER_DIR% is adding a new line, any way to stop this?

I've tried FORMULA="replace( %LAYER_DIR%', '\n', '/n' )" but that doesn't work.

Any help would be much appreciated

    Can you post the exact text that is going into the LOG_MESSAGE command? This sounds like something we fixed a while back. What version of Global Mapper are you using?

    For example,
    LOG_MESSAGE c:\new_folder\file.txt
    does not produce a new line in the log file.

    Hi Bob,

    It looks to be my version as the above didn't work.

    GM v19.1.1 (b091718)(680)
