I noticed this before. New lines don't work in RichEditControls or RichStaticControls. I classed it as a limitation

RE: SetControlText \n Help!
I believe you need to change it to fin.SetControlText('IDControl',"line1\r\nline2").  The \r is a carage return while \n is a new line character.  This i a difference between unix/linux and windows based systems.  Windows uses \r\n with new lines (unix/linux uses just \n...).  If this doesn't work then could you please give use some more of your code and the code for the control so that we can test it ourselves to help you further.
