Syntax highlighting for SQL code snippet does not work with new lines

What I did:
pasted sql code snippet as preformated text.

What happened:
syntax highlighting does not work with new lines

What I expected:
syntax highlighting works regardless of any white space

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):

This is indeed a current limitation alas of how the syntax highlighting has to work in conjunction with single paragraphs. The only workaround we can offer atm is to not use hard returns but instead use soft line breaks (option- or shift-return) to get the same visual effect but with proper code highlighting
