Replace Escaped Characters with Control Characters

I am using data sets in Photoshop. The text file that I am importing from uses '\n' instead of line feeds/breaks. It would be very helpful if Photoshop could handle these gracefully by replacing escaped characters with the equivalent character on import. For example, it should replace \n with line breaks. Otherwise, I have to manipulate the file in a text editor to replace the characters before importing the file into Photoshop as data sets.

Thank you!

I'd recommend using BBEdit or Notepad++ (or a Perl script) to manually fix that before import. Photoshop doesn't have sophisticated text handling and there are a lot of other changes that would have bigger impact for the community. Just saying.
