Drupal 7 – Plain text does not follow newline character

Even you have enabled the Convert line breaks into HTML in the settings page, all line breaks are still ignored.

A workaround is to apply the following css to all your plain text fields.

.body {
  white-space: pre-line;


Done =)

Reference: Plain text format does not honour filter processing
