Text formatting

I am currently evaluating a trial version of FM Pro 16 and have immediately run into a problem.  I have large slabs of text in my current non FM file.  I have successfully exported this to CSV and thence into FM.  But ... line/para breaks turn into \r\n in the CSV or tab delimited files and remain as \r\n when uploaded into FM.  I've tried replacing with a paragraph symbol - but that too ends up in FM as a paragraph symbol rather than an actual break.

 

I really need to be able to insert breaks so that the text is readable.  Surely there is a simply find and replace command that will do this?  I've trawled over the net and the community posts but can't work out how to do it.  FM otherwise has many features that are spot on my needs but this formatting issue is almost certainly a deal breaker for me.  I have far too many records for a manual operation to be feasible.
