print("Jim\nKane")

The escape character '\' followed by:

  • n - newline
  • r - carriage return
  • t - tab
  • " - quotation mark

So

print("\"Jim\nKane\"")

gives what you typed in your question.

Hi @Jason Lightfoot,

I am using display object to print the text on screen. It is not working in the way you suggested. Also "\n" is getting disappear automatically.

Can you look at it here?

No that doesn't work in a text visual tool. Consider using the draw code and drawtext() instead.
