is their and new way to add a new line into the metadata description and summary fields. I have a python batch job that is downloading external data into our system. As part of the process it is updating the metadata. I have been asked to append the summary with some of our organization's info. But I can not get it to honor the a new line when viewing the metadata in ArcCatalog. I have tried the classic "\n" in python. Looks fine in the raw xml but looks like some sort of white space stripping is going on when it is viewed in ArcCatalog. I also tried editing the metadata via ArcCatalog and I get the same effect....
