    I realize this is old, but you can just put <br/> exactly where you would like the break to happen. This is called a self closing tag so you don't need the opening and closing tags...just the one.

    Use \n

    This will apply the line break in OBS from your stream labs labels

    eDeneSport, the only thing I use to link streamlabs to OBS is Browser Source and I add my Stream Labs URL there and its honoring the <br> </br> tags. 


    Not sure about any other plug-ins unfortunately as I am quite new to streaming myself and still figuring a few things out. Sorry I couldn't be more help. :/

    eDeneSport so weird. I definitely have gotten this to work with all the alert categories from Follow to Hosts.


    I just went to every category within Stream labs and this is exactly what I have under Follows Message Template:


    {name} <br> is now following !</br>


    That so the name of the follower shows on top and the rest at the bottom. 


    The other thing you can for OBS to preview. Make sure you're using Browser Source. Keep all the defaults minus the URL.. Also try to do Refresh cache of the current page. You can also try checking off the refresh browser when scene becomes active. 


    BTW, I am using OBS 18.0.1-FTL.0.9.4 which supports FTL for Mixer. 

    Hope that helps.

    JD, not sure if you will read this, but ...  I just ran into the same issue and figured this out. You can use the <br> command the following way, for example with hosting alert:

    {name} is hosting <br> with {count} viewers! </br>


    add the </br> command afterwards to do the break. Worked for me with OBS.

    This seems to not work for some reason. When I, at least, do this, the line break shows in the preview, but in the actual OBS preview, it refuses to acknowledge what <br> means, and shows the tag itself without actually applying the break like it should be doing. I have tried to edit the txt file manually, and it does succeed for a moment, but then it reverts itself back to what it was before. It's actively refusing to allow me to do this. What are we doing wrong?

    You can use <br> in the alert message text in your settings.
