CONVERT HTML TO TEXT

Hello
Trying to convert HTML field to plain text - can do this but when converted to plain text there are no line breaks in text - and there should be.
Any Ideas.
Currently my process is as follows.
Drop HTML field onto report
Format Editor
Paragraph
Text Interpretation  HTMLText                         x+2 formula box - using crHTMLText

You don't need to use both the formula button and the dropdown.  If you always want the text to have a certain interpretation then use the dropdown.  If there are instances when you want different interpretations based on the record then you would use the formula.

Crystal doesn't interpret all HTML commands so you may be using a command it doesn't interpret.
