I'd like to figure out how to extract a multi-line SharePoint field without corrupting the contents as you can see in the capture below. Bottom line, all I want to do is to copy a multi-line field from an existing item onto my new item. The results captured have been obtained by querying the source list item, placing the multi-line content into a collection-type variable, to then update the new item with it.
Use "query list" to get the field value and store it in text variable
(DO NOT STORE IN COLLECTION VARIABLE)
Use update list item
PS: In case you need to get values from multiple items, you will need a collection, then parse collection using "get item from collection" or "for each' actions whichever suits your workflow
