Force a return (new line) in string variable

Is there a way to force a return (new line) in a string variable so that when it’s displayed on a dashboard it reads a little easier?

I typed in a return after %now%

But the return doesn’t work (I want the date on a new line below the time):

This seems to be more of a Dashboard issue than a Rule Machine one.

I just tested with manually adding an enter and also “
” and “

” and all of those show the line break saved in the variable, but there is none on the dashboard.

Use HTML code. <br> will make a line break.

Works in attributes anyway, have never tried with a variable.

I tried that in a variable and it worked in the variable screen, but was ignored on the dashboard…
