No line breaks between Introduction and Command Sections for HelpWriter

Post by adbertram » Fri Jun 23, 2017 9:17 am

I've created a module help file that looks like the attached in HelpWriter 2.1.34. However, when I look at how the help is rendered in PowerShell, the line breaks are gone and it looks terrible. Can this be fixed?

Can you upload the help file, so that we can investigate:

And what version of PowerShell are you using?

It looks like PowerShell trims and truncates the Introduction with the Command section no matter what spacing is used. I recommend moving the Introduction text into the Command section.

Note: In order to align the text columns, I recommend using a fixed-point font in Options->Editor->Font and Color.
