Multi-line paste into Location flattens to single line
If user pastes multiple lines of text into a Calendar item Location, it should get flattened to a single line. (That is, simply strip \r\n out of the pasted string, instead of just taking the first line).
That way if someone pasts an address like
4865 Rainier Ave. S
Seattle, WA 98118
it will turn into
4865 Rainier Ave. S Seattle, WA 98118
instead of what it currently does, which is just:
4865 Rainier Ave. S
This is a simple and easy-to-implement improvement.

The issue is worse once you paste a 2+ line address you can't edit any line past the first AND if you edit the first you lose the rest.

I feel like I've been complaining about this to the Outlook team for decades. So so frustrating that it doesn't do something so simple. I don't even care that it doesn't auto-complete address locations like smartphones do, I just want it to support copy/paste for addresses. Currently, I paste it into the notes field, delete the carriage returns, and copy/paste it into the location field.

I wanted to post the same idea. This is one if not the most frustrating function I use every day. I always have to copy & paste elsewhere and then combine each line manually.
Please improve this!
(Bonus goal: Propose (not: do) auto correction if you find a similar address on maps.)
(Bonus goal 2: If it's an external appointment during a work day, propose a new calendar entry for the travel time from the office to the destination calculated by Bing Maps routing, same for weekends and my home address.)

Yes!!!!! The current behavior is SOOO frustrating.

Please do this for the Subject line of emails too! I frequently copy/paste 2-line text into an outlook email subject and have to copy the text into notepad first and remove the newline before I can paste into an outlook subject.
Outlook for Mac already has the desired behavior-- would be great to see this behavior on PC too.
