Why does my user defined field show "<br/>" when there is a line break?

After entering information into a user-defined field with the display type of note field, users notice that the text "<br/>" appears in the text next to the field.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Create a new user defined field with these specifications
    • Data Type: Text
    • Field Application: Contacts
    • Display Type: Note Field
  2. Then go to an account's journal, and create a new contact, fill in the new field you created with text that has line breaks in it by pressing enter after entering some characters
  3. You will then see the issue with "<br/>" where everywhere the enter button has been hit.
