This has already been fixed on the development branch which will become 4.2 shortly.  Closing report.

Sorry, I was just going to add that this is not a regression, as it works in fact with gnuplot, the problem only exists with fltk.

This is well known problem, see bug #31468 and should be fixed with the next release.

Why do you tag this as "regression"? This has never worked with OpenGL toolkits.

While the on-screen display is correct, newlines disappear both in a.png and a.pdf, rendering the text on a single line.

Using a cell array of strings changes nothing.

I would appreciate a workaround, if possible, as I really need this...
