I tried the one that's not working for you. I tried it twice, once with
the last line unterminated, and again with the last line terminated by
hitting enter. When cutting and pasting, I assumed that you intended a
space where the first line wrapped, as in "n - >" not "n ->".

Both worked on my Studio 10, ROM 5.08, Latest RockBox Daily CVS-030416
from the website.

On a slightly different but not completely unrelated note, have you tried
"%pf"? It's a graphical progress bar specifically for the Player/Studio.
It makes the Player "feel" like a completely different machine to me. It
needs to go on a line all by itself, but IMHO it's really awesome, and
totally worth having to cram everything else on the single remaining line.

Good Luck!
