Yes, please preserve line breaks when transcribing. I have also noticed that not all volunteers are including them, and since we are transcribing for searchability it is not crucial, but does help with reviewing the items.
I suggest including them whenever you transcribe, but if you are reviewing an item without them that is accurate in every other way you can either approve it as is or add the breaks and resubmit. Hope this helps!

Yup, it sure does. I just thought I'd better verify, since I was seeing so many that hadn't observed line endings Thanks again!
