Write from map structured operation cannot add new line (\n)?

Using the write from map structured operation, we are unable to add literal text such as "\n" after calling the map structured rule in the method. This is clarified in Pega help but also a limitation to our requirement and perhaps something that is generally requested so I am hoping there is another way to do this when we need to write a structured file. 

We should be able to have a way to carriage return upon completion of a map structured record but the current platform does not enable us to do this. There is a workaround but when running a partitioned data flow (multi-threading) we can end up with a file with multiple records on one line followed by multiple carriage returns which is not the intention.

The workaround is to add a second step after the first connect-file step and with the write from clipboard operation, add literal string "\n"
