I am using <?php the_author_meta( $field, $userID ); ?> to display a user biographical info. In the users bio info box, there are physical line breaks present. Yet the results from the_author_meta() just flows the text altogether and does not recognize any line breaks.

Is there a way to have the line breaks appear as is in the user's bio box?

    What are "line advances"? – kaiser Sep 17 '14 at 20:39

If "line advances" are line breaks you could try wrapping the output in wpautop()
