Labels - line break - additional character displayed in AIMS/MapGuide

For labels with line breaks MapGuide/AIMS displays an additional character if the label is defined as MTEXT. The character is not displayed in Map nor does it get exported / appears in drawings created with _maptoacad.

Line break in MText - additional character is displayed in AIMS.

Switch from MTEXT to TEXT in your label layer (or you could replace the existing line break with MText compatible line break: "\P" using SQL). If you switch Mtext to Text (at least in Studio) you will loose some format settings - such as Font height.

Additional info:
Has been reported to and confirmed by Autodesk Support.

To check which character-code is used for line breaks use DUMP command in Oracle sql:
SELECT text, dump( text, 1013 ) from p1 where text like '%(enter)%';
