What would you like to do?
Axlsx line break
require 'axlsx' do |package|
workbook = package.workbook
workbook.add_worksheet do |sheet|
wrap = workbook.styles.add_style alignment: {wrap_text: true}
sheet.add_row ["Foo\r\nBar", "Foo\rBar", "Foo\nBar", "Foo\n\r\nBar"], style: wrap
package.serialize "linebreak.xlsx"
Copy link

The same code doesn't give a new line in my mac OSX. Then i added this line and it works
package.use_shared_string = true

Copy link

Re: Mac OSX, please note it's use_shared_strings (with an S at then end), not use_shared_string.

Thanks, works great in Excel
