Is there a way in FM10 to exclude Newline from TOC?

2011-08-15 Thread Böðvar Björgvinsson
Hi all. In earlier versions (up to 7.2) there was a FrameScript plugin that could "learn" where you wanted a line to break in a TOC, and if the text included a newline (SHIFT-ENTER), it could be disregarded. Is this possible directly in FM10 or is there a script or a plugin that can handle this?
