    - add a text area field

    - add a preview before submit widget

    - type in text area field info with multiple lines

    - click preview and submit. Notice it doesn't retain the line breaks

    Note that rich text works fine. Plain text has the issue. Please ensure they both retain line breaks. Thanks!
