If you specify multiple data, e.g. fake Name ✕ 10 for 10 names, the data will be separated by newlines (n).

In the case of Paragraph and Address types, the data will be separated by two newlines (nn).

There is also a Snippet Trigger (xxfake by default) to insert fake data directly into other applications.
