harlowe:escaped_line_break

Escaped line breaks

Sometimes, you may want to write an especially long line, potentially containing many macros. This may not be particularly readable in the passage editor, though. One piece of markup that may help you is the mark - placing it just before a line break, or just after it, will cause the line break to be removed from the passage, thus “joining together” the lines.

Example usage:

This line
and this line
and this line, are actually just one line.

Details:

There must not be any whitespace between the and the line break. Otherwise, it won't work.

Like most passage text markup, this cannot be used inside a macro call (for instance, (print: <br> 3)) - but since line breaks between values in macro calls are ignored, this doesn't matter.
