Text File Format - Need CR/LF for Windows Program

Try as I might, I can't find a Text File output format on FM14 Mac (nor Go)  that actually saves CR/LF at the end of each line when I save records to Tab Separated text files. It seems to make zero difference whether I select MS-DOS, Windows (ANSI), Unicode16, etc. It still saves with what apparently is only a Line Feed character.


It looks fine on the Mac and iOS text file viewers, but doesn't have the proper linebreaks in Notepad.


However, if I open it in a Word on a Windows machine, then save it as a text file, that fixes it.


How can I force Filemaker to do spit out the right character? I really don't want to have to do the "Open in Word, then save" hokey pokey.
