SharePoint 2013/10 - Infopath Forms - Multiline Text box not splitting lines

InfoPath forms when used on the SharePoint list, some multi-line fields will not show line breaks and it keeps in one liner while read or edit of form.

To fix this issue, you can add a small css correction on the master style sheet or as is required.
InfoPath form multi-line text box will render as text area and hence below css will override it wrap the text.

    white-space: pre-line !important;

Please this as is on your css or on page as required to over come this issue. Hope this helps.

Happy Browsing!
