Removing line breaks from new forms rich text log

Hello everyone,

I recently re-created one of my legacy forms to new forms. One subtle difference is that new forms forces line breaks between log entries while legacy forms does not. Unfortunately, this is impacting the form factor of my reports.

Is there any way I can remove these line breaks from the rich text log? I have found this script as a report formula, but it does not work as intended.

SearchAndReplace([RichTextField],"\n"," ")

    then use successive search and replace functions in a single doula field to strip them out.  You may find <br><br>. As a line break or

    <p>
    or
